Wren, June 13, 2018

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and Wednesday Around The World
W is for Wrens - small brownish birds with loud voices

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 2, 2018
The Carolina Wren, Thryothorus ludovicianus, is a resident of the eastern half of the United States. They will come to suet feeders in the winter, and they like chopped peanuts, shelled out sunflower seeds, and mealworms. In warmer weather they eat a wide variety of insects.

Keeping a brush pile in your yard to give them shelter will encourage them to stay with you.

I have a pair of Carolina Wrens nesting in a hanging basket plant on my front porch. If you look closely, you can see the eggs. But I will stay away from the nest until they hatch. I hope I can get photos of the babies!

Have a wonderful day!

  5. The males are quite persistent with their song trying to get a female to check out the nest or birdhouse they have. They are fun birds to have around.

  6. Oh, yes, they are so sweet. It's wonderful to have their song as part of the garden choir. :)

  7. How amazing that you have them nesting in your hanging plant! I would think watering it would make things too wet for a nest. How awesome you will get to see the babies hatch! Gorgeous photos, by the way!


I enjoy your comments!
