Winter Wren on territory

This Winter Wren was staking his claim to a piece of McMinnville's Rotary Park this morning by singing from high and visible lookout posts. I can't think of any species that has a longer song in proportion to body size than this one. With a total body length of 4 in. including tail and bill, his lungs cannot be very large. Does he sing on both exhale and inhale?
