birds

Eurasian wren is a very small spare bird with a loud voice and a short, mostly erect tail. It is reddish-brown in color, with brownish-white underneath and cross-sectional throughout. The species is an insect killer and makes a 5-7- light brown-brown egg. The move is between September and November and returns in April-May.

Eurasian wren appears on rivers and streams, moist peat forests, slopes and dense spruces forests. Prevalence area covers Europe as well as parts of Central and Eastern Asia, North America and North Africa.

Eurasian wren is a fast-legged scamper which sings especially on spring mornings. The voice is strong and dashing rhythmically. It can be met in a staggered position, tail upright position, eg. on a stream.

Eurasian wren may have benefited from the climate change and the distribution area is slowly spreading towards the north. The species thrives in old forests as well as on the edges of the forest openings.
