Male House Wrens will build a nest of twigs in every available cavity in his territory. If he is able to attract a mate, she will choose one of the nests and finish it with a lining of finer fibers.

I would lean toward Long-billed, based on the dark centers of the scapulars, the bill shape, and the very low loral angle. I can't say definitively based on this picture.

Any other pictures? ...
