"A bird does not sing because it has an answer--
it sings because it has a song."
A touch of spring on this winter day, and a reminder to us all.
We each have a song to sing.
Carolina wrens are good role models.
Winter can be really hard on these wrens, a deep freeze can be dangerous for them. But on last week's coldest days, I still heard them fuss and bluster, and yes, even sing. Unlike most birds who only use chip notes and calls during winter's non-breeding season, Carolina wren's sing all year round!
