Wren

In this archived broadcast from June 18, 1992, John Weeks talks about the sound that birds make and how you can hear them everywhere. He especially talks about a tiny,  energetic bird called a wren. He mentions the kinglet as well. Both these birds are very high pitched. The wren is a retiring bird and they have a long song. Weeks then talks about what he is seeing and what the wren looks like.
