Classic Carolina Wren

A Carolina Wren makes everybody smile!

I recently restocked my mealworm feeder (a tiny birdhouse), and within three days this Carolina Wren found the stash. Two days later, he brought a little friend with him. Now I have two Carolinas singing out to the world their hearty praises of mealworms. I love to hear that song (loud and demanding) in the dead of winter!

Oh lucky you! He's sure a cute little guy. Once in a great while I'll see a House Wren, but only in the summer.

Darling little birds! So far all I'm feeding this fall/winter is squirrels... Maybe I should try mealworms instead of birdseed!

One of my two most favorite birds—and, I'm happy to say, constant residents here on the riverbank. Their bright, fortissimo singing fills the grayest winter day with cheer.

Have had perky little Carolina Wrens here for 20 years, making nests near the house and skittering on the deck...I know it can't be the same pair, but they sure have the same routine and habit of resting in the hollow end of rolled up porch blinds.

Hmmmmm... Okay, I'm contemplating a feeder set-up in my back yard in direct view of my kitchen window, and I've already chosen a a seed feeder and a suet feeder. Now I need to see if any of the suet we sell has mealy worms; if not, I'm gonna need to add a third feeder to the pole. Thank goodness for Christmas gift cards!

I never heard of a mealworm feeder. What a great idea. Now if I only had some wrens!

Mercy, that is one beautiful photo.

They do have a sweet song and for mealworms, you are getting extra.

Hope your Christmas was blessed.

We have wrens in our hdege I must try to see the similarities and differences between these two. They are so beautiful and this is a lovely photo.

I just adore wrens.. they are such cute little balls of fluff. We have a little 'rock wren' here in the southwest I love to watch hop along the desert floor.

Wonderful shot and such a sweet little bird! You've obviously found their favorite food.
