Mystery wren #2

Mystery Wren #2

This is a medium-sized wren, plain brown above, and pale gray below with a bold white eyebrow line. The long gray-brown tail is rounded at the tip with white corners. These birds are most common in the western scrublands, woodland thickets, and backyards with thick underbrush. The song is similar to a song sparrow’s: a few high notes, lower trills, rising buzzes, and ending on a trill. Clue: This species was named by John James Audubon to honor his friend and fellow artist Thomas Bewick.
