Most easily recognized by its incredible voice; complex, high-pitched whistled song rings through dense, moss-covered forests. Not as impressive to see as it is to hear. Very small, dark brown, with short tail often cocked upright. Western counterpart of Winter Wren (formerly considered one species). Two species barely overlap in range. Note differences in song and darker, warmer plumage of Pacific. (eBird)

This wren's song was a constant companion during our BC birding trip. However, we only saw him once, when I was using my landscape lens! Oh well, you get to see him in his natural habitat :-)

Striking medium-sized woodpecker of far western North America. Beautiful plumage with mostly red head and breast and bold white slash on the shoulder. Some show vague pattern of black-and-white on the head, but always more extensive red than Red-naped Sapsucker. Also note limited white mottling on back, and no black on the breast. Juveniles are dark brown on the head and breast. Beware that some hybrids with Red-naped occur, and might be best left unidentified. Breeds in coniferous and mixed forests, descending to lower elevations in winter, as far south as northern Baja. Like other sapsuckers, drills rows of sap wells into tree bark. Listen for irregular drumming (like morse code) and various nasal calls. (eBird)

This wonderful woodpecker put on quite a display for us as he tried to determine if we were a threat to his territory, or just besotted birders :-)
