Eurasian Wren, Troglodytes troglodytes


Eurasian Wren Troglodytes troglodytes

One of my woodlannd birds

1440-wren-af2t3537I have been hearing the wren from my woodland bird hide since it was built in the early spring of this year. Just lately I have been seeing them briefly as they forage for food. The main thing that people notice about the wen in the enormous voice it had its song is piercing. The wren is not our smallest bird that distinction goes to the goldcrest with the wren not much bigger.

The wren likes to skulk around in the undergrowth looking for a meal; they feed on insects and spiders and occationally sow themselves for a few seconds.
