The Carolina wren had other plans. Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) The Wren is the shortest of all UK garden birds. It went on and on like this, the worst part being those pauses. Not chirps or peeps, but rather harsh, raspy "scolding" sounds! Its song may sometimes be confused with that of the dunnock, which has a warble that is shorter and weaker. The wren's song also incorporates repeated trill sounds while the dunnock's does not. Despite its generally mouse-like behaviour, the male may sing from an exposed low perch as its whole body quivers from the effort.

In addition to its scolding call, the House Wren has a song that is a "bubbling musical series of complicated whistled notes and trills" (Cornell). Overall, they are less dark than Marsh Wrens with a more buffy appearance. I can sleep through the steady din of robins and house sparrows (they were out there too), but the wren was like a slow motion car alarm. Like Marsh Wrens, Sedge Wrens are winter visitors to Central Florida, and they can be found in grass or sedge marshes from October through April. Very active and inquisitive, bouncing about with its short tail held up in the air, pausing to sing a rich bubbling song, it adds a lively spark to gardens and city parks despite its lack of bright colors. Although not the smallest, an accolade left to the Goldcrest, which weighs in at just six grams, about the weight of a two pence coin, the Wren certainly punches far above its competitors when sound-to-size ratio is factored in.
