The Wren is one of the most common birds in the UK. Wrens are stocky birds and are known for their brown plumage. They eat insects and spiders and often dart about in a fast pace. They are extremely noisy birds that can be heard at dawn as the females protect their nests from male intruders. They are said to be ten times louder than cockerels. This small bird has been finely modelled and hand painted to create a lifelike study.
