Wrens are curious birds that will occasionally approach very closely to investigate a novel entitiy in their environment like a camera. Rio Rico, Sta. Cruz Co., Arizona, USA, July 2010.

With their long slender bills wrens can pull insects and spiders out from crevices in tree bark and rocks. Most have long tails as well. Bewick's Wren is readily distinguished by the white stripe through the eye. In Arizona's sycamore woodlands this is a common bird year round.
