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!”
