Eurasian Wren

Troglodytes troglodytes (Linnaeus, 1758)

In Anglophone Europe, it is commonly known simply as the wren. It has a very short tail which is often held erect, a short neck and a relative long thin bill. It is russet brown above, paler buff-brown below and has a cream buff supercilium. The sexes are alike. Source: Wikipedia
