Troglodytes troglodytes, commonly known as the wren, is a small, brown bird with a short tail and a long, thin bill. It has a white stripe above its eye and a white throat. It is found in a variety of habitats, including woodlands, gardens, and hedgerows. Its lifespan is typically between 5 and 10 years, and its current population is estimated to be between 10 and 20 million.
Name Origin: The scientific name of the organism, Troglodytes troglodytes, is derived from the Greek words "troglodytes" and "troglodytēs" which mean "cave-dweller" and "one who creeps into holes" respectively. This is likely a reference to the organism's natural habitat, which is typically in dark, damp places such as caves.
