Little, but Loud

Tiny Troubadour on Bird Feeder

Small, but powerful, this Carolina wren was poised for its morning serenade. Its chest puffed out then forcefully contracted to power its delightedly loud song. The performance repeated over and over with minor variations. Even with the windows closed it could be plainly heard indoors, and I almost imagined that the white squirrel sculpture wished it had hearing protection. It’s a wonder that such big sound can come from such a small source, but I would never want it to stop.
