When you are learning bird calls, the Cardinal voice is one of the easier to identify. However there is another species in our area which produces cardinal-like songs. Though the sound of the Carolina Wren is quite similar to the Cardinal, these rich brown birds have many fewer variations in calls with the pattern “tea kettle tea kettle tea kettle” being the most common. We briefly heard one this morning at the Bluffs.
Here are some photos from previous walks:
Park scenes on this very overcast morning:
Thought you would appreciate this photo taken by a friend.

Growled deep in the sky;
And Orion’s hair
Streamed sparkling by:
But the North sighed low,
“Snow, snow, more snow!” – Walter de la Mare (1873–1956)
