Pacific Wren (r) see more at my website

I'll take a break from bears for now, I have tons more to show you so I will post them intermittently. This sweet little Wren was one of many I saw in the forest yesterday.

Pacific Wrens creep along the forest floor and sing loudly from perches. One of the only North American wrens associated with old-growth forest, there is some evidence that they are being harmed by forest fragmentation. Pacific Wrens used to be considered the same species as Winter Wrens, but after studies showed they do not interbreed, they were split into separate species in 2010 (info from Cornell)
