House wren

At pine gulch on Friday, accompanied by Amanda's grandma and mom, we caught a house wren! It's not the oddest of birds, but for the area it's fairly uncommon. It was the 30th for the Palomarin field station, and the fourth at pine gulch (since the 70s). It was a bit confusing at first, as all we usually catch are Bewick's wrens and Pacific wrens, which look quite different than house wrens, and we were not expecting it, but we figured it out.
