Genus Troglodytes

Apache wren - Adults are 11-13 cm long and weigh about 12 g. The subspecies vary greatly, with upperparts ranging from dull greyish-brown to rich rufescent-brown, and the underparts ranging from brown, over buff and pale grey, to pure white. All subspecies have blackish barring to the wings and tail, and some also to the flanks. All subspecies show a faint eye-ring and eye-brow and have a long, thin bill with a blackish upper mandible, and a black-tipped yellowish or pale grey lower mandible. The legs are pinkish or grey. The short tail is typically held cocked.


Troglodytes cobbi - The plumage is brown, greyer on the head and breast and more rufous on the tail. There are dark bars on the flight feathers and tail. The bill is long, blackish and slightly curved. The main confusion species is the Grass Wren which is smaller with a shorter bill, buff eyestripe and dark streaks on the back and head. Cobb's Wrens have a number of buzzing calls and their song is a series of jumbled trills and whistles. The song can be heard from August to February and varies between individuals with different males having different song patterns.


Santa Marta Wren - Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.


Ochraceous Wren - It breeds in mountains at 900 m to 2500 m altitude (sometimes up to 3000 m in wet epiphyte-laden forests, and semi-open areas such as woodland edges, tall second growth and pasture with trees. Its cup nest is constructed in a swinging mass of epiphytes hanging from a branch 5–15 m high in a tree. The eggs are incubated by the female alone for about two weeks to hatching, and the young fledge in about the same length of time again.


Tepui Wren - The Tepui Wren is a species of bird in the Troglodytidae family. Its natural habitat is forest edge and shrubbery on tepuis, subtropical or tropical moist mountains of south-eastern Venezuela and adjacent parts of Guyana and Brazil.


Troglodytes sissonii - The Socorro Wren is a species of bird in the Troglodytidae family. It is endemic to Socorro Island, Mexico. It was formerly placed in Thryomanes but was moved to Troglodytes considering "manners, song, plumage, etc".


Clarion Wren - It looks much like a House Wren but is larger with a prominently longer bill, somewhat approaching the Carolina Wren in form.

Winter Wren - The Winter Wren , also known as the Northern Wren, is a very small bird, a member of the mainly New World wren family Troglodytidae. It is the only one of nearly sixty species in the family that occurs in the Old World; in Anglophone Europe it is commonly known simply as the Wren, and is the originator of the name. It is noteworthy among songbirds both because of its long and complex songs and because it is one of the few passerine species that has a distribution spanning both North America and Eurasia. It is also highly polygynous, an unusual mating system for passerines
