Peppy, Perky and Perpetually Chirpy

They’re peppy and they’re perky
Adorable and quirky
They’re altogether chirpy
The Carolina Wren
(da da da da snap snap)

It’s no fun if I have to explain the intro…you either got it or you didn’t, but I hope you did!

As I was filling up the feeders the other day, this sweet Carolina Wren popped in and started hopping about on the Bark Butter Branch.



I think the up-turned tail, as well as its hippity-hop movements, adds to the chipper impression these birds tend to make.



Although small in stature, Carolina Wrens are definitely big in personality.  They always seem to have a song in their heart and a pep in their step!

    Lovely photos Kathy, it reminds me of the wren I saw recently in Britain, they are similar. The tail reminds me a bit of our Kookaburra. You have a real gift capturing these birds around your home.

    Haha! I didn’t get the intro at first until I sung the “da da da da snap snap” part! I love your parodies!! I love Carolina Wrens, and I was so surprised to see one at the end of a call I was following. They certainly enjoy singing praises (very loudly) to God!

  3. Love the little wrens. They have tons of personality. Thanks for sharing, Kathy.

  4. Well, I can sure see the pep in their step! Very sweet!!! Thanks for sharing!!! 😊

  5. Such a cute little bird!

  6. Oh, I definitely “got it”, Kathy! We only have house wrens here but they share the same characteristics.

    You know I will have that song in my head all evening! (In a fit of silliness one day, back when my son was much much younger and we were visiting a city, I rattled off a similar ditty which immediately became known forever after as the Pigeon Poop Song. You don’t want to know.)
