Scientific name: Troglodytes troglodytes
Nature Stars: 30
About: A tiny brown bird with a short, cocked tail. Only about 10cm long. Wrens can be found in almost any habitat, anywhere they can find insects to eat and sheltered bushes or crevices in rocks in which to build their domed nest out of moss and twigs. In fact
How to identify: The combination of small size, brown colour, cocked tail and loud voice make the Wren unmistakeable.
Fantastic fact: The wren used to appear on the old farthing coin.
