Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes)

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. [RSPB]

  10. This is a sweet little darling birdie!
    I love the photos with the barbed wire, the contrast makes the bird look even more fragile!

  12. Reminds me of a poem I once wrote:
    "Pretty bird, perky bird,
    Happy, chatty wren,
    Flits into my empty heart
    And flutters out again."

  13. Aw, don't let the lady wren hear you call her "dumpy." She'll come sing under your window and make you regret it!
    ;)
    All kidding aside, wrens are beautiful birds. Lovely shots!

  21. Dear little fellows!


    Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how…We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.
