This Carolina Wren was happily hopping around the trees, shrubbery, and lawn here when I snapped these pictures on a very rainy afternoon yesterday. I am always glad to see songbirds here. I of course, see a lot of larger wading birds but the songsters have been in molt and nesting so I seldom see many.
The Carolina Wrens love to peek around the edges of homes. They often can be seen on porches. This bird was hunting for insects in the bushes and in a large nearby Magnolia Tree. By the way, although we will not have a Tropical Storm, it has been quite rainy here in Central Florida as we are dealing with the frayed remnants of what was “Erika”. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger photograph. Enjoy!
