Bewick’s Wren

When we arrived in Dallas, on 19 March 2016, a Bewick’s Wren greeted us. Curiously, during last year’s visit, I saw this species in the same bush. At least this year I documented that this species does, indeed, have a tail (see last year’s photo). Actually the tail is a good field mark, as this wren tends to wag its tail sidewise, unlike the somewhat similar Carolina Wren.

Bewick’s Wrens are a poorly studied bird, most common in southeastern Arizona, coastal southern California, and the Edwards Plateau of central Texas (Kennedy and White 2013).
