[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Eurasian Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes), is a very small bird, and the only member of the wren family Troglodytidae found in Eurasia. In Anglophone Europe it is commonly known simply as the Wren. It was once lumped with Troglodytes hiemalis of eastern North America and Troglodytes pacificus of western North America as the Winter Wren.

It is also highly polygynous, an unusual mating system for passerines.

It occurs in Europe, a belt of Asia from northern Iran and Afghanistan across to Japan. It is only migratory in the northern parts of its range.[2]

The scientific name is taken from the Greek word "troglodytes" (from "trogle" a hole, and "dyein" to creep), meaning "cave-dweller", and refers to its habit of disappearing into cavities or crevices whilst hunting arthropods or to roost. The taxonomy of the genus Troglodytes is currently unresolved, as recent molecular studies have suggested that Cistothorus spp. and Thryorchilus spp. are within the clade currently defined by Troglodytes.[

Salut Tibor,
O specie frumoasa dar extrem de greu de fotografiat datorita faptului ca se misca incontinuu......
Detalii si culori naturale frumoase.
Numai bine!

Szia Tibi,
Szépek a színek, a részletek, s ha az a vékony ág máshol lettvolna, akkor a Te képed is jobb lett volna!Gratula, Jóska

Hi Tibi,
nice photo of this bird. Amazing colours. Maybe a little to much noise.
Thanks for sharing,

  • Great
