Clearly not a troglodyte
This wren was singing high up a tree. Clearly not a troglodyte (cave dweller/hermit). Guess this is the view from down under.

Nor a pointless little king as the French and Spaniards call him! Very nice shot
Didn't realise it was called the pointless little king as well. A search led me to this blog where they describe the stories associated with the wren/wran in different countries, and its possible link to Christmas... Interesting read.

 
can hear him singing up to here, Jaysan, wondeful capture of this lovely little wren, love it, many tfs!!

This is one of the more common birds, that I hear a lot, but find it extremely difficult to see well enough for an picture.

You've sure mastered that difficulty Sandeep... a fabulous picture of your not a cave-dweller LOL. Thanks my friend.
