Oh my, that's embarrassing. I guess it's time to start using the newer Sibley's (still prefer the ergonomy of the old). But hey - why check the guide when you grew up with it?

I had no clue about the split. Once a Winter Wren, always a Winter Wren - as you say that's what I grew up with!

Is this truly a Winter Wren ( Troglodytes hiemalis) or a Pacific Wren ( Troglodytes pacificus)?

I grew up with Winter Wrens around the Seattle area, but they turned in to Pacifics in the split of 2010. I have read of at least one confirmed sighting of Troglodytes hiemalis in the Pacific Northwest, identified by song, recently.

Winter Wrens in the city are always a treat, and one has been showing up occasionally on a nice little birdy local patch - the p patch on 60th Street NW between 2nd and 3rd. It was doing its full on song today, and was there earlier in the week too, and there was one there a couple months ago. For any Phinney/Ballard folks, this little patch is always a little birdy - today, scrub jays, butterbutts, siskins along with usual suspects...
