House Wrens and Marsh Wrens are two of the most common wrens found throughout the United States. But those of us in the Southwest and West have the added benefit of seeing another lovely wren, the Bewick's Wren.
Named after the famed 18th century British ornithologist, Thomas Bewick, the Bewick's Wren is a small-bodied bird with a slightly downcurved bill. But its big claim to fame is its conspicuous and dashing white eyebrow. It gives it a sort of distinguished, Clark Gable look and makes it an easy bird to spot in your backyard.
Here are a few photos of this bewitching little bird, including one of its sexy rear end. At least sexy to other Bewick's Wrens, one presumes.
