The Eurasian Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) is a very small bird with a very strong voice.

Americans might recognize this bird as similar to their Winter Wren or Pacific Wren, those used to be considered sub-species of the Eurasian Wren but in 2010 (based on vocalizations and genetics) they were split into three species.

This one was photographed in August in Amsterdam.

      • The royal reference might have surprised you. It’s just that the wren’s German common name is king of the fence (ZaunkΓΆnig). πŸ™‚
