Waiting for Spring

Carolina Wren

Thryothorus ludovicianus

 

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing THREE Carolina Wrens hanging out at the house. They've bred in or near our yard for the last two years (although never at the nest boxes I have provided for them), and it's nice to see them hanging around - particularly since they have been relatively absent most of the winter.

 

As I was sitting out in the cold, this one took position on this stump and stayed there for a good, long time. The shadows were tough, but the light sometimes caught him just right.

 

I guess I'm going to have to get those nest boxes out a little earlier this year...
