Most of the Winter Wren that I find during my biological field surveys are associated with dense piles of wood. I have found them in wetlands in more herbaceous but dense vegetation. They seem to like the security provided by their jumbled structures. Of course calls are effective in locating them. I agree with Dotty on the tail angle and length.

If Charles could entice his wren to sing it would absolutely settle the id question since the two songs are totally distinctive! 🙂 They both breed in my neck of the (northern) woods so I hear the songs regularly during the season.
I've seen a few, but not many. When I've found one, it's always been in wet woods. They like structure, nooks and crannies, so can be around the roots of a fallen tree or other such debris. They respond to their call, and also can be enticed to sing. On Dec. 6, I had one singing in Washington county.

Again, I appreciate the discussion that my original question
engendered. I've learned a lot. Good birding, everyone!
