A highland species that occurs from about 1250 to 3500 m, the Rufous-browed Wren is found in humid, epiphytic-laden forest, and it spends much time foraging within epiphytes, as well as creeping below fallen logs. Like most wrens, the species remains in pairs year-round. It is a typical, short-tailed, Troglodytes with barred flanks and a warm rufous supercilium, but is otherwise very similar to congenerics, especially the House Wren (Troglodytes aedon). The Rufous-browed Wren’s distribution ranges from southern Mexico south to northern Nicaragua. Comparatively little information has been published concerning the species’ life history and behavior.
