(Zeledonia coronata), bird of the rain forests of Costa Rica and Panama. It resembles the wren in size (11 cm, or 4.5 inches), in being brownish and short-tailed, and in its habit of skulking in undergrowth. It is thrushlike in beak and leg structure. The wrenthrush has been classified as a chat-thrush (q.v.; family Turdidae, order Passeriformes) but is now considered to belong nearer the woodwarbler (q.v.) group (Parulidae). Some authors prefer to separate it, provisionally, as the family Zeledoniidae.
