Wren from the Window

Journal - Last week when I went into the garage to get into my car, I heard a bird, singing like crazy -- and so loudly, I thought s/he might have been trapped in the garage. I looked and looked, but when I glanced out the window, I spotted this Carolina wren singing his heart out --- what a cheery fellow!
