Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

I was surprised to see this little Wren on my back deck the other day!  I have had few birds around here lately due to weather, construction, and the fact that I don’t have a bird feeder out at the moment.  I took my feeder down for seasonal cleaning and it just has not yet gotten put back up.  The Carolina Wren was closely examining the opened Acorns and Hickory nut shells on the deck to see if there were any insects.  After all, why do all the work of opening tough shells when there are hard-working Grey Squirrels or Eastern Chipmunks to do all that heavy work for you?  Ha!  Smart bird!  These birds also eat small spiders.   I took these pictures from my window on Oct. 6, 2011.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!  P. S.  I inadvertently forgot to press the “Publish” button this AM so that is why this is so late getting on your screen.
