What kind of Wren?


Recommended Posts

This is an adult/immature House Wren. Winter Wrens differ from House Wrens by their shorter bill, shorter tail, and more small, dark, plump overall. Winter Wrens also have more barring on the flanks.

Additionally, these two species have different behaviors. Winter Wrens are more secretive and not usually seen in backyards, in the open, and/or near houses.

I actually tested this picture in Merlin and it said House Wren. I used Photo ID and put the location as Ohio. Weird that we had different results...

Thank you, I've had Merlin come up with different results with the same photo before, I've also had it come up with birds that are nothing like the photo I used!
