It's a Carolina Wren.  I don't know how to explain sounds very well, but Northern Cardinal songs are not as...soft?  And the pattern is wrong.

I can get what you mean. It does sound softer and less rapid than the Northern Cardinal song. Thank you for the identification. I just realized this song is almost exactly the same as the one I asked a few days ago. That's why it sounds so familiar to me :) Bird songs are so hard to memorize.

Yes, they can be.  The best way to memorize which bird makes which sound is to find the birds and watch them sing and call.

I considered a Carolina Wren, but I thought it sounded more like a Cardinal. I played the calls again and you are right, it's a Carolina Wren.

Thanks for the correction.
