More About Wren

  • Widespread and abundant resident found everywhere from large cities to remote off-shore islands. Populations can crash after severe winters, but currently one of our most abundant birds with about 10 million pairs in Britain and Ireland
  • Habitat : Anywhere there is low cover - woods, hedges, gardens, srcub, sea-cliffs, mountains, reedbeds, etc.
  • Tiny size and russet-brown colouring and plump stumpy shape with tail usually cocked, readily identify the wren.
  • Has very loud trilling song, heard throughout the year
  • Wrens are daily visitors to our garden often remaining active for some time after sunset, constantly examining an ivy-covered wall.
  • Flight is rapid except during the brief glide before landing when rounded wings and spread tail present a 'parachute' appearance.
  • The wren's song may be heard during every month of the year and even occasionally at night
  • Not only is the wren one of the most widespread species in the country, but it is one of the most adaptable.
  • Locally, it may be expected not only in gardens, but also in farmyards, sand-dunes, thickets, hedgerows and woodlands.
  • Wrens are not social during the day, but regularly pack into roosts soon after sunset during the winter.
  • They may continue this habit until the last week in April
  • It is on record that nests specially built in mid-winter have then been used for communal roosting, providing a warm refuge from frost and snow.
  • During severe weather, one nestbox roost held 60 wrens. The occupants took between a quarter and a half hour to enter at night and twenty minutes to disperse in the morning
  • small, plump perching songbird of the family Troglodytidae.
  • There are about 60 wren species, and all except one are restricted to the New World.
  • The plumage is usually brown or reddish above and white, gray, or buff, often streaked, below.
  • Have longer, slender bills and usually perch with their tails cocked straight up.
  • They are valuable insect destroyers.
  • Most wrens nest in natural holes and cavities; house wrens, which range over most of the United States and S Canada, will nest in boxes built for them and in crannies about dwellings.
