Wrens are friendly birds that many know and love, and they begin with the letter W. What other birds do?

Waxwings
In Stockholm, Sweden, thousands of waxwings are gorging on fermenting berries ... and crashing into nearby windows!

Western Gull
The Western Gull is a typical-looking seagull that is the Utah state bird. It has a white head and body, with grey wings. It's found along the Pacific coastline. Its name is Larus occidentalis.

White Dove
The white dove has been the symbol of peace and hope for thousands of years. How has this innocent white bird struck such a chord with humanity?

Wild Turkey
Itīs hard to imagine that a mere 100 years ago, the Wild Turkey in the US was in danger. Overzealous hunting had driven the native bird, once considered by Benjamin Franklin to be the ideal national bird, into dangerously low numbers.

Willow Ptarmigan
The Willow Ptarmigan is a lovely bird that is built to withstand the cold winters in Alaska.

Wood Thrush
The Wood Thrush is the state bird of the District of Columbia, home of the White House.

Woodpecker, Hairy
The Hairy Woodpecker, or Picoides villosus, is often confused with its smaller relative, the Downy Woodpecker. Both have striped black heads, with the females having a red dot on the back of the head.

Wren
There are a number of wren varieties - all small, brown with a white underbelly, a longish beak that is slightly curved downwards, and a pointed-up tail.
