The Eurasian Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) or simply called Wren is a small passerine in the family Troglodytidae. It has a widespread distribution which stretches in a broad band from Western Europe to Japan in Eastern Asia. It also occurs in North West Africa. The northern population migrates south to winters in the warmer parts of its range. It was formally considered to be a subspecies of the Winter Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) which has now been split into three full species - Eurasian Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes), Pacific Wren (Troglodytes pacificus) is found in western North America and Winter Wren (Troglodytes hiemalis) occurs in eastern North America.
