  Troglodytes aedon

* Most widely distributed song bird in North America.

* Accepts a variety of habitats, from dense thickets, shrubby areas, riparian areas, and back yards.

* Young males take clues from older males about what areas make good nesting sites by nesting close to older males.

* Prodigious singers for such a small bird.

* Very active and energetic. Often cocks tail straight up.
