The Other “Carolina” in the Yard

DSC_8108

A Carolina Wren is that other Carolina in my yard this last week.  The rust-colored chirpy little bird is loud active and fun to see.  The Carolina Wren is similar in nature and looks to the House Wren.  Both wrens like being near homes and tend to like to explore the shrubbery around porches in their search for insects to eat.  I took the pictures last weekend.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of that photo.  Enjoy!

The Carolina Wrens here in Florida seem to be a tiny bit chunkier than the ones I had seen up North in Eastern Tennessee.  The Carolina Wren shown here was busily hunting for insects in the thick hedge in front of my porch.  Carolina Wrens are round-shaped Cinnamon-Brown birds with long up-swept tail feathers.  They have a white stripe above their eyes.  Both genders look-alike.

Carolina Wrens are alert birds  that don’t mind being around houses and structures.  They are pretty active little birds that eat insects as well as fruits and berries.   I have been seeing several kinds of small birds in my neighborhood in the last couple of weeks.  I took these pictures on October 4, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

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!
