There are about 80 species of wrens in 20 genera worldwide. Wrens are mainly a New World Family, distributed from Alaska and Canada to southern Argentina, with most in the Neotropics. There are 10 wren species in North America, which brings me to the featured photo: the Canyon Wren.

Wrens are very common in Santa Cruz County with the Bewick's being the most common and wide spread. We also have the Marsh, House, and Pacific Wrens but they are common in the appropriate habitat. So, when a Rock Wren showed up last weekend it was a big deal for the area birders.
