    Overview

    The loud ringing call of the Carolina Wren (Thryothorus ludovicianus) is one of the commonest sounds of southeastern woods, where it is heard even in the winter. The call is usually a series of double or triple notes, written as cheery, cheery, cheery, or tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle. The bird has been called “mocking wren” because it sometimes sounds like kingfisher or certain other kinds of birds.
