One of a few House Wrens in my garden (Calgary, Alberta)
Two Wrens were exceedingly upset that an Eastern Gray Squirrel was climbing their tree. They harassed him unmercifully until he slunk away
Heard calling near a small building.

The House Wren (Troglodytes aedon) is a very small songbird of the wren family, Troglodytidae. It occurs from Canada to southernmost South America, and is thus the most widely distributed bird in the Americas. It occurs in most suburban areas in its range and it is the single most common wren. Its taxonomy is highly complex and some subspecies groups are often considered separate species.
