House Wren

This bird popped up to the top of a bush less than 10 feet away as we were scanning the area from our vehicle. I first detected it, by its loud rattling wren-like calls, although it wasn't a call I was familiar with. It was readily identifiable as a wren by the body shape; long thin bill; and short tail. I identified it as a House Wren by the pale grayish body plumage; no eyeline; barred wings; and medium-length brownish, heavily barred tail (noticeably longer than a Winter/Pacific Wren tail). It was visible for about a half-minute, before disappearing back into the vegetation.
