The Bewick wren (Thryomanes bewickii) is named after engraver Thomas Bewick. American ornithologist John James Audubon collected a specimen of the bird near St. Francisville, Louisiana in 1821 and chose the specific epithet bewickii in honour of his friend the engraver Thomas Bewick. Medium-sized with a slender body and a strikingly long tail often held upright, it is similar to the Carolina wren but has a long tail that is tipped in white. Bewick’s Wren favours brushy areas, scrub and thickets in open country, or open woodland. It is native to North America.
