The canyon wren (Catherpes mexicanus) is a small North American songbird of the wren family, Troglodytidae. It is resident throughout its range and is generally found in arid, rocky cliffs, outcrops, and canyons.
It ranges from southern British Columbia in the Okanagan Valley and western and southern Idaho and southern Montana south through central Wyoming, Colorado throughout much of Mexico south to western Chiapas.
The canyon wren feeds on small insects and spiders. Since they live on large rocks, they use their long beaks to scope out small crevices. They also get their source of liquid from the insects they consume.
