Canyon Wren Habitat
Canyon Wren Facts
Canyon Wrens are common in the arid southwestern U.S. They are notoriously hard to spot as they blend into sandstone cliffs extremely well. Hikers often hear their unique, loud musical song well before laying eyes on them. They are highly adapted for gleaning insects out of tight crevices and appear to satisfy all of their water needs through food intake.
