Carolina Wrens

Carolina Wrens have been flitting here and there in my yards, on my porch and on my deck.  They are attractive little oval-shaped, cinnamon and rust brown colored birds.  The Carolina Wren is close in looks to the Winter Wren and also to the House Wren.  The Carolina Wren enjoys eating from the ground and does like the smaller bird seed that I have been putting out.  The Wrens also will eat insects.  The Wrens seems to be content being around the house area and don’t seem too unhappy when I am outside near them.  I think that the Carolina Wren is a winter visitor here as I had not seen it around in the late spring or summer.  I think that the Carolina Wren is a beautiful bird and I was happy to have it visit here.  These pictures were taken on 1-19-11.  Please click on the thumbnail version to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Is this the same as the regular brown wren?? It looks like the one that attacked me once. So cute, but very fiesty!!

  2. Hi Ginny, I am not sure about whether or not these are the same bird. These birds do look a lot like the Winter Wren. Maybe it is like the Carolina Chickadee and the Black-Capped Chickadee situation with the Carolina Wren just being another slight variation in the species. I just do not know. Have a wonderful day.

  3. Cute shots of thr Wren. They are adorable birds and I love seeing them in my yard.

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! The Carolina Wrens are quite inquisitive and pleasant little birds. Glad you also have these cuties! Have a great evening and a really nice Monday tomorrow!

  4. They are really cute, and your shots show them off very well! We don’t have them here and I really enjoy seeing them in your photos.

  5. Looks like the wrens we have in England. Nice photos. Don’t thin I’ve got one of a wren here yet!

    • Hi Helen, Thank you! I sure hope that you’ll get that photo of your Wrens soon. Have a fabulous day today and an excellent week! I so enjoy hearing from you!

  6. This post answers my question that I just asked about the wrens. I’m not sure what kind of wren we have–I only see them in the summer. They are the cutest little things. You sure got some amazing photos!
