"Anothura troglodytes [Troglodytes troglodytes - Winter Wren]-No.
585, August 11, 1875. Rather common in the dense woods, but rarely
seen ... it is often heard; however, for it possesses a gushing,
ringing song, wonderfully loud for so small a creature; excepting
the thrushes it is the sweetest songster in the Adirondac woods
-- Teddy Roosevelt, age 16, from his pamphlet The Summer
Birds of the Adirondacks in Franklin County, N.Y.
