Carolina Wren 3
Carolina wrens have several characteristics which make them easy to identify. They are a smallish bird, not much bigger than a sparrow. They have a rather long, narrow, curved beak used for exploring crevasses. Their tail is almost always "cocked." They also have a long white eyebrow stripe. Their voice is remarkably loud. There is no difference between male and female plumage.
In my mind they are to the bird kingdom what a chipmunk is to the animal kingdom.
