Bewick's Wren

Thryomanes bewickii

If you come across a noisy hyperactive little bird with bold white eyebrows, flicking its long tail as it hops from branch to branch, you may have spotted a Bewick's Wren. These master vocalists belt out a string of short whistles,
warbles, burrs, and trills to attract mates and defend their territory, or scold visitors with raspy calls. Bewick's Wrens are still fairly common in much of Western North America, but they have virtually disappeared from the East.

Uniquely wonderful view of this wren. Looks a lot like our house wrens and Carolina wrens, but I'll probably never see one of these. Beautifully photographed in the bright sunlight.
