Wren Bird: Identification, Behavior, and Feeding Guid

Wren Bird: Identification, Behavior, and Feeding Guid

The Wren (Troglodytes Troglodytes) is a small dumpy bird that is warm brown in colour with lighter shades of brown and cream, its wings are small and roundish and the tail is short and narrow which is sometimes cocked up vertically.

It is also known to have a loud song which is a clear warbling sound & quite remarkable for such a small bird.

It is a common UK breeding bird and inhabits a wide variety of places from remote mountain tops, sea cliffs, woodland, farmland and parks; it is also a regular visitor to most gardens. It is a timid little bird that never keeps still for long and, when they venture out into the open they dart from one place to another like they’ve misplaced something, in search of food such as spiders and insects, looking through any nook or cranny in a tree or bush to see what they can find.

A great way to attract Wrens to your garden is to feed dried mealworms which are full of wriggle-free goodness and can be fed from a bird table, ground feeder or a small dish left at the base of shrubs or bushes which is ideal for attracting a Wren’s attention. You also might like to try our soft-foods Prosecto Insectivorous, and Golden Chorus which are both full of wholesome goodness and contain fruit that the birds will love.

Autumn and winter are hard time of the year for our feathered friends, and as the autumn leaves start to fall the weather will turn colder, and one thing we must all remember to do is give a little extra help as they will need extra food to keep their energy levels up to stay warm.
