What Wren

Recommended Posts

Nice picture!

This is a House Wren. Carolina Wrens have red-brown upperparts and buffy underparts, while House Wrens are uniformly dark brown. The most defining feature, in my opinion, is that Carolina Wrens have a contrasting white eyebrow and throat while House Wrens do not. Also, House Wrens are smaller and shorter tailed than their counterparts. 

Overall, House Wrens are far less descript than Carolina Wrens.
