Tea Kettle Songbird

Thryothorus ludovicianus - the Carolina Wren - is our State Bird here in South Carolina. Its loud, clear song is sometimes written as “tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle.” The small bird with the big voice sings this three-syllable chord over and over again. They sing each set of chords in bursts of three-to-five repetitions, sometimes adding a final “tea” to close the chorus. How fitting that this "tea-kettle" bird should make its habitat in South Carolina, where Tea is the state hospitality beverage!!! (Listen to the Carolina Wren here.)
