Unidentified bird

  • Hi all just finished setting up for the bird watch tomorrow and saw a tiny brown bird he was really teeny hopping about and I have no idea what it is. Hes pretty much brown all over with a lighter chest. No distinguishing marks that we can see. I cant get a picture as hes too small and quick. Any suggestions? Thanks guys
  • Hi Tracie two possibilities spring to mind, one a Wren (you can see its tail usually sticking upright), and the other is a Dunnock, they can usually be seen skulking under bushes.

  • Its tail was really small and I'm pretty sure it wasn't stuck up in the air. thanks for replying

  • Here is a Wren www.flickr.com/.../album-72157629000058637

  • And a Dunnock www.flickr.com/.../album-72157629658787997

  • hummmm I'm not sure hes almost completely round maybe its a baby?

  • Sounds like a wren imo.

  • I also think it sounds like a Wren.
