A young wren by henrir

A young wren

I thought this was a baby wren. It's sounds like it is saying "sweet, sweet" ... or it may be saying "help, help." There are two flying around our house. I think there may be a nest near by, but I haven't seen it yet.

Thanks to my 365 friends, I have confirmed this is a baby/young wren due to its yellow beak for feeding. I learn so much on 365. Thanks to everyone for your visits, comments and favs. I appreciate them very much.
Aw, little bitty baby!

I am just about certain it is a wren ... they are small so I am not sure it's a baby... it has all its adult plumage.

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty sure it is a wren. It is so small. I thought maybe it was a juvenile since it had only one sound. Not the beautiful songs I heard on line. I am pretty sure there is a small next somewhere nearby.

Maybe a wren, but it is definitely a young bird. You can see that in the yellow color of the beak. It's a sign for the parents: put the food in here.

It's definitely a wren and I'd say a baby too. They don't get very big though. Good shot!

@wenser @tonydebont Thanks so much for your help.

How interesting. I never knew that the yellow colour of the beak was to help the parents. Great shot.

Oh, such a sweet capture! Amazing how it is holding on with that one little claw, maybe the same with the other foot. :-)

This caught my eye but I'm no good with American birds. All I can say it is a baby because of the 'gape' either side of the beak. As others say it is the guide for the feeding parents. It disappears as the bird matures.

how sweet and what a wonderful capture, that feeding gape causes it to look like it has a mustache, at least to me. i never fail to learn something on this site.

Great find and a cute capture. He sure does look young and I hope he is okay.
