A Bird Haiku Per Day in May Day 17: Bewick’s Wren
Quick, sharp tail bobbing
with a melodious song
and a white eyebrow
Like most wrens, you’re likely to hear a Bewick’s wren before you see it. They’re known for their complex and multi-phrased songs, which they belt out with force and verve. These sparrow-sized birds are also famous for being a bit hyperactive as they bob their tails and quickly switch direction while perched. The white eyebrow of the Bewick’s wren distinguishes it from other wrens of the Pacific Northwest.
