A Carolina Wren

Wineburgh-Lillienfield Family Unknown (14)

Carolina Wrens are tiny birds!  This wren is a multi-colored brown and buff bird with rusty-orange highlights.  Carolina Wrens eat small insects and fruits.  They enjoy pieces of nuts and seeds, too.  This is only the second time I have seen a Carolina Wren here in my new neighborhood in the four months I have lived here in Florida.

I saw this wren sitting on a large shrub.  The Carolina Wrens love to explore in bushes and in lower branches of trees.  Being such a small bird, the Carolina Wren can fit in tight places between branches where it can hide.  The Carolina Wrens are sometimes seen on porches.  I had a pair nest in my hanging flower pots on my front porch back in Tennessee a couple of years ago.  I took these pictures from my yard on July 1, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!

  1. i love these tiny song powerhouses!

  2. I just love these cute wrens! They are kind of loud though! Great shots! Have a happy weekend!

  3. So cute! Is it bigger or smaller than a regular wren?

    • Hi Ginny, Maybe about the same size or just slightly smaller. They are somewhat Carolina Chickadee-sized birds. Hope this helps. Have a wonderful Saturday tomorrow!

  4. Cute little bird! Very nice for you to have them around.

  5. Great pictures! These birds are bundles of energy, it’s always fun to see them!
