Troglodytes troglodytes.


During my wanderings I am often spied upon by one of our tiniest residents, the Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) and on a recent chilly early morning stroll this individual was lit up by the rising sun

For a very tiny bird, just 9-10.5 cm in length, it produces one of the loudest songs.


Whether uttered from deep cover or out in the open there is no mistaking the presence of a Wren.  FAB.

  10. Okay, I just had to find the etymology for Troglodyte. C16: via Latin from Greek trōglodutēs one who enters caves, from trōglē hole + duein to enter.
