House, Brown-throated, Antillean, Tropical or Cobb's Wren

Troglodytes [aedon, brunneicollis, martinicensis, musculus, beani or cobbi] (= Troglodytes aedon) Vieillot, 1809

The House Wren (Troglodytes aedon) is a very small songbird of the wren family, Troglodytidae. It occurs from Canada to southernmost South America, and is thus the most widely distributed bird in the Americas. It occurs in most suburban areas in its range and it is the single most common wren. Its taxonomy is highly complex and some subspecies groups are often considered separate species. Source: Wikipedia
