      (species Chamaea fasciata), bird of the Pacific coast of North America, believed by some authorities to be the only New World member of the babbler family Timaliidae (order Passeriformes), but often placed in its own family Chamaeidae. A fluffy brown bird about 16 cm (6.5 inches) long with a long tail, the wrentit calls harshly and sings loudly in thick brush, where pairs forage for fruit and insects.
