Bewick's Wren

Technically, these aren't the best pictures because this Bewick's Wren was quite a ways away from me, so I had to blow the image up considerably. I decided to post them, however, because I had never seen a Bewick's Wren before, nor knew they existed. When I was shooting it, I thought maybe it was a Bushtit, but when I viewed the images at home I saw it had dark eyes, so it had to be something else. Also, the lateral dark stripes and upward tipped tail suggested a wren. That white stripe above the eye was the deciding factor in identifying it. This is another taken at TRNWR. I get something new every time I go there.
