We interrupt these recent posts on the wetland wanderings to share a few photos of some familiar backyard feathers – one of my favorite birds (please don’t keep track of how often I say that!) the Carolina Wren.
This lovely, lively little fellow has a volume that greatly surpasses his size, and a pretty extensive song repertoire too – up to about 40 songs.
Don’t you just love his warn, rich color tones! I don’t know if it was today’s lighting or what, but he seemed extra coppery. I even thought about naming him Abe!
These wrens are so much fun to have around with their perky, peppy personalities.
They are not picky eaters, though they do show a preference for the peanuts and the mealworms.
Having a change of scenery and taking pictures of different birds in different places is fun (and there will be more Florida posts to follow), but I think there’s something to be said for Dorothy’s words, “There’s no place like home!”

One of my favorite backyard characters too, Kathy. Darting here & there overhead, loudly sounding off the whole time. I sometimes reply as I hurry out with my offerings, Ok! Ok! I’m coming.
I just love it when they hop up the deck stairs, one step at a time!
They are so pretty – what colour they have! Thanks for sharing.
They are equal parts pretty and peppy!
Love your wren! I’m on my way home too, looking forward to being home though I had a great time away.
Beautiful AND talented! Of course you are allowed to proclaim your favourites!
What a sweet little bird. Thanks for the lovely shots.
