IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern
A common bird of the Pacific Coast chaparral, the Wrentit can be difficult to see as it skulks through the dense scrub. Its taxonomy, or placement in the classification of bird families, has proven very difficult to pin down. It's not closely related to any other North American species.
Song a series of sharp whistled "pit" notes, repeated on the same pitch and occurring more rapidly, followed by descending trill.
Call a rattling "churr."
