Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Wrens


Wherever there might be brambles, long grass in meadows or cattails, there are probably wrens close by. These small brown birds are more often heard than seen. When they are actually seen it is usually with their tails pointing up. Even when they are in areas where they are known to exist, it is still no guarantee that one will be seen.

There are three species of wrens seen in Cuba and only one is a native bird and a rare sight to see. This is the Zapata Wren. The House Wren has a large range from the southern areas of Canada, far south to beyond the countries of Panama and Trinidad. Lastly, there is the Marsh Wren which is likely a migrant.
