Bewick's Wren (Thryomanes bewickii)

Here's another of those little brown birds that we are all familiar with though they are so small and modest that we may not see much of them. This is a Bewick's Wren (Thryomanes bewickii). Once again, I am a little uncertain when it comes to identifying these small brown birds so any real birders out there who may recognize this bird as something else, please let me know in a comment. These little birds hop and flutter around so much in thickets and bushes that it is very difficult to photograph them so I was pleased to capture this shot recently in Highrock Park in Vic West.

That's a wren, alright.
Cute little pikers, and flitty.
Once, one held unusually very still while I got a great close-up look at him. No camera with me though. I think they are more often found in denser bushes near the beach.

Weird. Your bird is in the nearly exact same pose / angle as the one in the reference link you posted.

terrific shot. really, congratulations on getting this one. as you said, these little guys are always so jumpy and fleeting, it's always difficult to get a good shot of them.

nice blog, too, of course,
