Common Name:Wrentit
Scientific Name:Chamaea fasciata
Area:Bluebill Lake, Oregon

Wrentits are busy little birds that like to stay out of sight in thick shrubbery. Surprisingly they are not vocally shy. They will make their clicking call even when you are close at hand and will sing their song with boisterous volume way out of proportion to their size. You will hear them many times over actually seeing them.
