 Spot-breasted Wren

The Spot-breasted Wren is a small, skulking wren and like most wrens, it is heard far more often than seen.

Both sexes measure about 4.92 - 5.51 inches long. Males weigh about 14.3 - 16.8 grams, while females weigh about 12.4 - 16.2 grams.

Adults' plumage is a rich rusty brown overall, with white eyebrow and dense black spotting on whitish breast.

Juveniles have much weaker markings than the adults.

CALL: Rising call note sounds like a finger run along a comb.

SONG: Rollicking, ‘happy,’ whistled song is a duet between male and female, keeping them in touch with each other.

Subtropical or tropical dry forest, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest, subtropical or tropical moist montane forest, and heavily degraded former forest.

Found in Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.
