One of a few Bewick's Wrens that had been taking the opportunity to forage for insects around a suburban backyard during the morning after a rain storm from the day before.
Sadly, out of the dozen photos that I took, these 3 are the best shots I was able to get.
one leaf, in the way
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.
