Nothing says spring to me more than a flute like song of a wren. Such a loud melodic happy voice packed into such a tiny body!
There are 46 species of wrens found in North America. Only the Winter Wren is found outside of North America, ranging across Eurasia. Even so, not “all birds of a feather flock together.” Most wren species are monogamous, relatively solitary birds. Often foraging in pairs, they mostly prefer dense forest and desert scrub, where they can poke around in crevices and dead leaves to their heart’s content, searching for spiders and insects.
Keep your eyes open for movement in the bushes and on the forest floor. Since they are not migratory, you may see them in your area at any time of the year!
