Wren. The wren is a tiny brown bird, although it is heavier, less slim, than the even smaller goldcrest. It is dumpy, almost rounded, with a fine bill, quite long legs and toes, very short round wings and a short, narrow tail which is sometimes cocked up vertically. For such a small bird it has a remarkably loud voice. It is the commonest UK breeding bird, although it suffers declines during prolonged, severely cold winters.
Little Winter Wren how sweet you are. Photography by Long Pond Studio. (KO) Fall and Winter are coming! Please buy inexpensive birdseed and put it out soon. Put itin an accessible spot, safe from cats and other predictors, and keep it full for the birds. They go hungry often due to snow, ice, other wildlife and cold. Thank you! Be kind to out feathered buddies. :)
Fancy seeing more of this small in stature, but big in personality little chap in your garden? Wrens look for places with lots of lovely nest sites and plenty of tasty insects to snack on, so grow dense thickets, make log piles, plant hedges where you can and cloak walls and fences with climbers, preferably over a trellis #homesfornature Photo by Lloyd Spitalnik
