I went for a very brief walk south on the Quinnipiac Train off Rte 42. I had a Winter Wren just a few steps to the west of Nettleton's Ravine in the spicebush/skunk cabage/hemlocks. There was another Troglodytes troglodytes (I love that Old World Name - 'Reminds me of the HG Wells classic, The Time Machine) further down the ravine in the hemlocks to the west. There were the usuals - Veery, Scarlet Tan, BT Green Warbler, BC Chickadee, etc. - no sign of the Ravens present in the Spring.
What a beautiful song. It's amazing; Winter Wrens sound just like the complex, melodic whistles of Patrick Dugan.
