Bewick's Wren

I have been seeing a different Wren.
I have been hearing a different Wren.
Today this Wren wanted me to get to know him.
To identify I need a good tail photo.
The Carolina Wren is very similar.
Bewick's Wren has the tail feathers with the white corners and is a wee bit smaller.
The song of the Bewick's is different too.

I am very excited to see a Bewick's Wren.

How cool Sherry! I've never seen a Bewick's either.

Hi Jayne,
Bewick's is little bit smaller than Carolina. Much different song too. I was not 100% sure so I waited for my husband to see the phot and agree. Bird Id can be very hard.
Still no Buntings for my backyard.
I may go hiking to see if I can spot a few.

You certainly did get a good 'tail photo' :-} How cute!!

Hi Deb,
I had to wait a bit for Bewick's to turn and give me the tail shot. I did get tickled!
Wrens are so cute and happy sounding.
Your birds are all returning too and singing their sweet songs to you!
