Carolina Wren

First heard singing then seen twice by me and three times by Joseph. Seen twice once up in trees along east side of park between road and river near picnic tables just off road on southeast side of park. While we ate lunch in this area this wren sang from the top of a fallen stump not 20 feet away from table. We had clear looks through our binoculars. The wren had a reddish/rusty cast to its flanks and lower breast/belly with a white line over and behind its eye. The back was brown. It was definitely more rusty in appearance than a similar Bewick's wren. The call completely different - loud and often. I have had close contact with this species in my past while living in the Kansas City area where one lived in our woodpile.
