Troglodytes troglodytes

Here is one of my favorite birds, a Winter Wren. They are fellow hole dwellers hence the scientific name. They are only 4 inches long and are loud and non-stop singers. While doing surveys on the Olympic Peninsula they were one of the most common birds because I could hear them as soon as I stepped out of the truck.

Now here's a photo that made me laugh. This is what a Winter Wren probably wants the banders to kiss!
