Chickadees, kinglets, and wrens are small, hard-to-see birds in the passerine order. However, they all have musical calls, particularly the Pacific Wren. Kinglets will often be high in the canopy, while wrens prefer searching for food on the ground. Kinglets and chickadees will sometimes forage together in a group.
Chickadees - Order Passeriformes, Family Paridae
Kinglets - Order Passeriformes, Family Regulidae
Wrens - Order Passeriformes, Family Troglodytidae
