The loud, ringing call of the Carolina Wren is a common sound in southeastern woods, where it is heard even in winter. The bird has been called “mocking wren” because it sometimes sounds like a catbird, kingfisher or certain other birds. (Photo by Rachel Clinch) Get other facts about this bird: birdsandblooms.com
Roufous sided Towhee- Kind of big for the bird feeders, they enjoy ground feeding most of all, and try to dredge up seeds off the ground with their dancing. I'm mesmerized by their rust, black and white feathers and easy to imitate whistle. I heard several and saw 2 at Fontanel's greenway trails in Whites Creek, near Nashville this weekend, 03-01-2014.
