If I had to choose a favorite bird, it would definitely be the Carolina Wren, a native to the Eastern United States. I love its diminutive size and robust call, not to mention it’s beautiful plumage.
We have a nest of Wrens in our garage right now and the fledglings are exploring. I happened to get a few shots of this adorable fellow, along with a shot of him and me so you can see just how tiny he is.
His Mama is feeding him as I type. I placed a block of mealworms and nuts inside the garage to make her life a little easier.
