Carolina Wrens

.

A family of five Carolina Wrens have been enjoying our brush piles, searching for insects.

Can you find the Carolina Wren in its habitat below?

Hint:  I almost always shoot a distant bird about dead center.

What is most enjoyable, they know I am there and don’t seem too worried.  I just sit on the trailer and watch them.  I love their curiosity!

Both males and females make calls to each other, but only the male sings the loud song.

How beautiful it was when this male popped out in the open and belted out a song like there was no tomorrow.

He seemed so happy singing his song!

  1. I love Carolina wrens and their delightful song, “Tea-kettle-Tea-kettle-TEA!” πŸ™‚
    Great shots, Donna, and the camouflage one had me stumped until you gave the location, ha!

  3. I couldn’t find the wren until I looked at the next picture! When I was in North Carolina helping out with my newborn grandson there were a couple of Carolina wrens singing in the bushes outside the windows for a good part of the day. I fell in love with their song and now when I hear them singing up here it always takes me back to those happy days. Lovely pictures, Donna!

    • Thank you, Barbara! They are a delight to listen to, and what a great memory connection with it and your new grandson. πŸ™‚ My hanging out with this family of wrens has me able to ID them very easily by song now, even the females with their low calls and hissing. πŸ™‚

  4. Wonderful series of images! It seems the small wren family is among the most aggressive of birds! Always quick to challenge an intruder into their domain.

    A surprise is how large a repertoire the Carolina Wren male has.

    Thank you for sharing this handsome brute!

    • Thank you, Simon! These wrens are so flighty, but have started to not worry so much with me hanging around. I love it, I hope they stay through the winter and reside on/near our lot year-round. πŸ™‚
