Bewick’s Wren

Thryomanes bewickii

The Bewick’s Wren is a western bird that lives in thickets, open woodlands and scrubby areas, often near streams. Their appearance most closely resembles the Carolina Wren of the east. In past times, the Bewick’s Wren ranged over most of North America. Scientists believe that the rapid expansion of the House Wren is responsible for the decline of the Bewick’s Wren, which now is relegated to lands west of the Mississippi Valley.
