A Pacific Wren, as photographed by Richard Kuehn

Pacific Wrens used to be called Winter Wrens but their name was changed by the powers that be a while back. They are year round residents of the Mendonoma Coast. Richard Kuehn had one pose for him recently.

This bird resides in forests and eats insects. We have several that live on our property. In the spring, the male's call is magnificent to hear. It seems to go on - well - nearly forever.

To hear a male singing in the spring, here's the link to the Macaulay Library: http://macaulaylibrary.org/audio/50129/troglodytes-pacificus-pacific-wren-united-states-oregon-geoffrey-keller  But the one Rick and I heard singing last week outdid the one on this recording!

Thanks to Rich for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
