The wren is a tiny rounded bird with a vertically cocked tail and reddish-brown plumage. Although busy and energetic, the wren is elusive outside the breading season; usually it shows itself only for a moment while flitting from one thicket to another in search of food. The male builds a number of ball-shaped nests, for the female to choose from, sited in hedges, walls, tree-trunks and even old bird nests. it is a widespread common resident.
