As Small as a Hummingbird, All Brown, and LOUD Beautiful Singer

by Carol Palmer
(Towson, MD USA)

I CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHAT BIRD THIS IS. THIS IS THE FISRT YEAR WE HAVE HAD IT. IT IS MAYBE 3 INCHES, AS SMALL AS A HUMMINGBIRD AND HAS THE SAME BODY SHAPE AS ONE AS WELL. IT'S ALL BROWN WITH A CREAMY/TAN BELLY. AND THE SONGS THEY SING ARE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, VERY VERY LOUD, AND THEY SING A WIDE RANGE OF SONGS AND SOUNDS, EVEN CLICKS. CAN ANYONE HELP ME FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF BIRD THIS IS? IT IS NOT IN MY BIRD BOOK EITHER.


SORRY IT'S NOT A BETTER PHOTO. THEY SCARE EASILY SO THIS WAS THE PHOTO I COULD GET.


MANY THANKS.

Bushtit?
by: Judy-Seattle

Your description sounds like a little bird we have here called a Bushtit. They have a long narrow tail and fly in flocks in the winter here. They otherwise have no other markings. Look up photos of Bushtits online and let us know if that's your bird.
