Here we have Little Edmund, a small wren who was jolted out of bed by a family of migrating American Redstarts. Based on what humans know about bird behavior, Edmund was probably defending his territory, wanting nothing to do with visitors, even if they were just passing through. But until bird notes don't get lost in translation, we'll never really know what the conversation was all about. For those of you that know wrens, you know they can really chatter up a storm.
