From my Christmas vacation in Mexico.
The surprise of the trip and a new bird for me.

The spot-breasted wren (Pheugopedius maculipectus) is a species of bird in the Troglodytidae family.
Found from northeast Mexico south to northeast Costa Rica, the Spot-breasted Wren is not entirely confined to the Atlantic (Caribbean) slope of Middle America, also ranging to the other side of the Continental Divide in southern Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. It is generally common, being found in a wide variety of wooded habitats, including second growth and plantations, where it forages, apparently for insects (although the species’ diet has not been studied) in low tangles and other dense vegetation. Its cheerful gurgling song recalls that of the wholly allopatric Happy Wren (Pheugopedius felix), which is endemic to western Mexico.
