Carolina Wren perched on an old treehouse in the banyan next door. This bird was singing very loudly and I went out to see what it was.
I was standing 20 feet away and it didn’t seem too concerned.
This shy bird can be hard to see, but it delivers an amazing number of decibels for its size. Follow its teakettle-teakettle! and other piercing exclamations through backyard or forest, and you may be rewarded with glimpses of this bird’s rich cinnamon plumage, white eyebrow stripe, and long, upward-cocked tail.
