Some kind of wren; video added
Posted 07 September 2012 - 11:55 AM
I saw it, it had a big eyebrow, but it didn't quite look like a Carolina wren, since it didn't have reddish color to it, it was definitely lacking the red on the belly area. I looked up all the local wrens, and couldn't make a match in color, or song. My guess is that it was either a light Carolina wren, or a Marsh wren with it's own rendition. The habitat was a damp area, near a pond, with trees, bushes and grasses. I have identified Carolina wrens in the area.
I didn't have my camera, but I will go see if I can get a recording.
Thanks for any input.

I know it is a bit noisy, my daughter was behind me in the house making noise and I really couldn't do anything about it, since I was trying to record the bird before it flew away and my battery was almost dead.
Thanks for any help in advance, and for the suggestions by those who have already responded.

Wow! Thanks. I don't think I have ever heard a Carolina wren going on and on as I heard this one, before. But that is probably what it is. It just looked different, with no reddish orange on it's chest. Do female Carolina wrens sing?
Carolina Wrens aren't sexually dimorphic, so you can't tell male from female. However, they do lose the reddish wash to their underparts with plumage wear, to the point where it can be nearly white this time of year.

Good timber does not grow with ease:
The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
The further sky, the greater length,
The more the storm, the more their strength.
