I took this photo this morning in Lido Beach NY. Is it a House Wren? I wouldn't expect it to be perching like this high up in a tree but I really don't know. It had a rather loud 3-note call that didn't match what I found online. It reminded me more of a Cardinal's call. Except for the eyebrow, I might have thought it was a Mockingbird.

Thanks,

I just listened to a Carolina Wren on All About Birds and it sounds like what I heard. I previously rejected Carolina Wren because I thought it looked too pale underneath and I couldn't see much of the back. This is a new bird for me.

It is very pale below, but I don't think that's too unusual.  What you can see of the upperparts in this photo (which is only the head) is too dark and red for a House Wren.
