Small bird, big voice!

Today I took a short walk in Abrantes, my local town.
Spring is upon us and it’s nice to hear and see the birds, they’re busy with the breeding season.

A wren male caught my attention…he spent most of the time singing his heart out. The only time he sttoped was to collect moss to build his nest.


The tiny wren has the strongest vocalization in relation to body size. The high notes of his strophic song can be heard at a distance of five hundred meters!
