Canyon Wren Catherpes mexicanus
Haunting and melodious descending trills echoing off rock walls may be the only evidence you have of Canyon Wren as this small but stunning bird is often more heard than seen. With a rich rufous body, a striking white throat, and a long, slightly decurved bill, the Canyon Wren can be located near both sides of the Balconies Cave area, along the Moses Spring trail, and the Bear Gulch reservoir.
Diet: Insects and spiders
Wingspan: 7.5” Length: 5.75”
