A Trio of Carolina Wrens

Wildlifewatcher's Blog (42)

Carolina Wrens have made their home in the shrubbery and trees just a few homes away down the street from my house.  These tiny cinnamon and buff-colored birds with upright long tail feathers are really adorable!  Their other characteristic, is that they enjoy being around homes, especially near covered front porches.  They have a very loud voice and often flit around chasing each other over a prize of food, finding a mate, or being territorial.  They are mighty-might little birds!

It has been raining a lot here and it also is molting season for many of our birds.   There just have not been a lot of active birds out when I am able to get outdoors to take pictures.   I snapped these pictures at about 6:00 PM last evening after the rains stopped.
