It turns out that Wrens are an interesting songbird, with species on all continents except Antarctica. They all have those banded wings, but mostly they are rambunctious singers.
They love the upturned tail feathers.
My Canary is very stimulated by these sining videos
It's kind of interesting how the Irish Free State and Republic had the woodcock on the reverse of their farthings while the British had the wrens going. Both cent-sized coins circulating in the British Isles were birds.
I have been thinking of making Wren farthings the host coins for my next elongated coin issue, perhaps. Those, or .500 silver sixpence, or .800 Canadian Schooner dimes, or silver Roosevelt dimes. Not sure which it'll be yet.
My mother's canary used to be particularly turned on by the in-sink garbage disposal in the kitchen, or the vacuum cleaner.
ohhhh - it hurts to think of smashing those beauties. I have one, from Granada Spain on a Euro cent
mine loves the crowd at baseball games
