Carolina Wren

Carolina Wren


Chris was able to play connect the bird to the song recently. One morning we heard a song that we frequently hear which is quite loud, and while using the binoculars to look at the four cardinals who were also in the yard, she happened to spot the wren singing in a tree. It flew over to the suet feeder. Since we've never seen a wren at any of the feeders before, she decided to give the new camera a try. Now every morning we are hoping for a repeat performance. What a great set of lungs for such a little bird!

Hi,

I love your photo of the Carolina wren sitting on the evergreen branch (carolinawren2_770586.jpg).

Can you possibly tell me what kind of tree the bird is sitting on? Is it a hemlock or a spruce tree or something different?

Thanks for your time.

There's something about a red head



Recently, Mike has been asking Chris to dye her hair bright red. Chris keeps reminding Mike that its the male that has the full head of red.

Greetings from Butler, NJ. The Northern Mockingbird isn't a regular visitor to our backyard. I enjoy their many songs and sounds when they are in the area. . Pictures by misseymarie : )
