House Wren?

Recommended Posts

Photo taken today south of Houston Texas. I have a lot of Carolina Wrens that I see here around the house but looking over my photos today, this one seems different, very drab in comparison. I thought perhaps Winter Wren too but not sure. Any thoughts? Thank you.

Yes, that's a "after-hatch-year" (AHY) House Wren. Winter Wrens have a shorter bill, shorter tail, more barring on the flanks, and are smaller with a darker, plump overall. Like you were saying, Carolina Wrens are more contrasty with a bright white eyebrow.
