Family Troglodytidae

Family Troglodytidae
Wrens in the family Troglodytidae are medium-small to very small birds. Wrens are largely a New World family that inhabit a range of habitats from dry, sparsely wooded country to rainforest. Most species forage near the ground, but some are associated with mid to upper forest canopy. The dominating colors of their plumage are generally composed of gray, brown, black and white, and most species show some barring, especially to tail and/or wings. There is no sexual dimorphism in the plumage of wrens, and little difference between young birds and adults. All have
fairly long, straight to marginally decurved bills. Wrens have loud and often complex songs, sometimes given in duet by a pair. Their behavior vary from highly secretive species to the highly conspicuous ones. Wrens build dome-shaped nests, and may be either monogamous or polygamous, depending on species. Though little is known about the feeding habits, wrens are considered primarily insectivorous, eating insects, spiders and other small arthropods. There are 10 genera and 24 species of wrens known to occur in Peru. Photo: Superciliated Wren ©Enrique Kindleman.
