Genus Troglodytes (Troglodytes are reclusive mythical people who live in caves or holes.)
I do not think I have ever met anyone who would not find the song of the wren uplifting on the grayest spring day or the coldest winter day. They sit on the end of a branch or the post of my deck and throw their little heads up to the sky and then sing silver notes. This winter one has been sleeping in the wreathe over the front door and I have to remember about it or it will fly into the house in a panic and we will spend an hour trying to capture it. They also have been caught in the garage several nights this month and refuse to leave seeming to enjoy the warmth of the newly parked car.
All of the above are a little blurry because they were shot through the deck window and not directly. It is COLD outside.
