Winter Wren in Summer

Winter Wren calling

It may seem out of season due to its name, but in late June, several HMS volunteers heard the call of a winter wren (Troglodytes hiemalis) around the Lookouts. The winter wren call is distinct, and the species is also known for being a bit secretive, staying in dense forests and away from human-populated areas.
