Bird of the Month, April 2020 - Bewick's Wren

Bewick's Wren

Thryomanes bewickii

One of our most common birds at Debs Park is our little Bewick’s Wrens. Although very small, these little ones are full of energy and a lot of noise. Very similar to the House Wren, however these little ones have a super prominent white eye brow or supercilium. Their diet mostly consists of insects and you will constantly find these wrens hopping from plant to plant, ground to plant, turning leaves over, climbing on trunks, or looking through crevices. They are extremely active birds! Like their foraging behavior, their songs are also very active, versatile, and can differ quite immensely based on geographic region. To catch a glimpse of wrens it is best to learn it’s song and track it by sound since they are so small. Come check us out at our park and catch a view of the Bewick’s Wren!
