Rock Wren

Salpinctes obsoletus

The Rock Wren is a wide ranging Western bird that can be found west to the Mississippi Valley from Southern Canada into Mexico. This bird is believed not to ever drink water, but meets all its water needs from the food it eats.  Most birds living in California, Arizona, New Mexico and west Texas are non-migrants, but some birds in summer will travel as far north as southern Canada to breed.
