The Carolina Wren, Thryothorus ludovicianus, is one of the larger and more richly coloured wrens from the United States. The wren is mostly chestnut brown with butterscotch bellies and a bold white eyebrow and throat. The patterning of its wings and tail make it a wonderful species to paint. The male of the species is a well known song bird, whose song vary regionally. Males and females look alike with the male being slightly larger.
