I am sorry I don't have a picture. By the time I grabbed my camera they were gone. There was a group on these little birds in the thick stand of night blooming jasmine beside a picture window. The upper body was plain brown the under body much lighter and it had a prominent light strip from beak to nape over the eye. The pictures on this site that are similar are the Bewicks', Winter and Carolina wrens. The call was identical to the last few seconds of the Bewicks' wren recording here, a raspy repetitive chirp. My problem in confirmation is location. I live in Sarasota Florida which appears to be outside the range of the Bewick's but within the range of the other two.

How many were there? Carolina would be the wren with an eyebrow that you'd see, but they generally don't travel in groups. I'll have as many as 3 in my yard in the summer, but that would probably include offspring of the ones nesting. Even then, they don't hang around together, really. Could your birds be palm warblers? Did you notice yellow under the tails, or tail-bobbing behavior?
