Bewick's Wren

Thryomanes bewickii

This spunky little bird is common across the campus.  In the spring they can be heard singing everywhere, and each bird's song sounds a little different.

If you see a small brown bird, with a white streak above its eye and a long flicking tail jumping through the brush and scolding you vigorously, it's likely a Bewick's wren.
