The Black-bellied Wren is a medium sized member of the genus Thryothorus (but see Systematics for a recent reclassification). Adult males and females are similar in appearance, with a stout body and slim bill, a rich chestnut back, a black belly barred with white, a thin white line above the eye, and a white patch extending from the chin to the upper part of the breast. Males are substantially larger than females. Juveniles are duller in coloration than adults. More

The true meaning of the songs of the black-bellied wren has been revealed for the first time by electronic tagging. In around 200 bird species, including many tropical birds, pairs sing together. More

defense in a free-living population of duetting black-bellied wrens in The Republic of Panama1. We found that male, but not female, wrens "cooperate" with their pair-mates by responding aggressively to opposite-sex stimuli, while both sexes responded aggressively toward same-sex stimuli. A quantitative review of the literature suggests that this is a broad pattern: compared to non-duetting species, duetting species exhibit a significantly higher ratio of inter-sexual to intra-sexual aggression during song playback experiments2.
