A couple of firsts for me this week.
This little Carolina Wren made a very brief visit.
The pics aren't that good, it was near dusk and I was shooting through glass, but this is a new bird for me, so I was pretty excited to see it, AND get some photos!I know these little guys are not rare to a lot of people, but they are rare for my area. They don't migrate, and I live slightly above the northern most tip of their range.
We have had very warm summer-like weather this autumn, and we if have a mild winter, I may see more of them!

A returning bird - First Of Season
I love the vibrant red (orange) colouration at this time of year. It fades somewhat during the winter.

I love the Carolina wren and your shots are great! We have one resident in our yard, but he's very shy. Kudos on the nuthatch. Wow! What vibrant color.ReplyDelete
Good shots Karen.....lovely these little birds.ReplyDelete
Beautiful birds and great shots of the little Carolina Wren!! Always fun to capture a new one! Delightful shots for the day as always, Karen!! Thanks for sharing the beauty!!ReplyDelete
YAY for getting to see the wren! i love those little sprites! jealous of your red-breasted nuthatch! so pretty!ReplyDelete
The wren is so adorable! You got some great captures of the little one. :)ReplyDelete
Your pictures are wonderful! I love the little wren. I don't see them often.ReplyDelete
What a cute little bird :) Great captures!ReplyDelete
Cute yard birds!!ReplyDelete
I would be excited as I don't see them at all. Cute !! I usually get a red nutty for the winter, but I read that this year's seed crops were good in Canada and there won't be as many visitors coming my way for food... MichelleReplyDelete
A new garden species,What a thrill..... great post and thanks for sharingReplyDelete
They are so similar to our Wrens and Nuthatches...lovely little birds I see in my garden.ReplyDelete
i rarely see the carolina wren but have been seeing them a lil more the last few seasons!!
i also see the red breasted nuthatch but last year was the first time!!
he has on his brightest orange for fall!!
Well done in spotting the Carolina Karen and it's always good to see pictures of Red-breasted Nuthatches, they are smart looking birds.ReplyDelete
I like these photos! Neither of these birds visits me, although I do see nuthatches with pink breasts regularly.ReplyDelete
I saw a nuthatch on Sunday but have never seen that wren before. You must have good clean windows - the shots are great!ReplyDelete
wow, karen, such gorgeous shots!ReplyDelete
i really like that last one.
The wren is so adorable!ReplyDelete
I think your shots are great! We don't see either of these birds at our feeders. Thanks for sharing them.ReplyDelete
Great photos. The little wren is especially beautiful!ReplyDelete
Both are new to me - and fill me with delight. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Great shots. I love carolina wrens and nuthatches. They move so fast I usually don't get shots of them.ReplyDelete
At least you had a CLEAN window. My pictures thru the glass on the window or door are always failures. These are fine.This little bird is so sweet and piggy. He looks to have a full belly. Lovely captures. genieReplyDelete
Wonderful bird photos - such characterReplyDelete
Very lovely birds.ReplyDelete
Such lovely birds!!ReplyDelete
HI Great shots of both birds.ReplyDelete
So cute! You got it in all poses. :)ReplyDelete
I'd say you got some wonderful shots of the wren. I love the third one!ReplyDelete
Seems funny seeing a red-breasted nuthatch. I usually don't see them.
Wonderful WBW post!
Fantastic, Karen! I have never seen a Carolina Wren...so, yes, I AM a tad jealous. :))ReplyDelete
Oh I love everyone of these I also love the orange. Hug BReplyDelete
You take the absolutely most amazing photos, these bird photos are incredible, what a treat to behold.ReplyDelete
Im impressed, Birds are soo difficult to come close enough! Good work!ReplyDelete
Great captures..... lovely little birds :)ReplyDelete
We don't have either of those birds up here in MA at least not that I am familiar with. They are so pretty.ReplyDelete
What lovely visitors!ReplyDelete
Nice little birds, I also like them.ReplyDelete
THEY ARE JUST GORGEOUS, AND FANTASTIC SHOTS, Karen!ReplyDelete
What splendid yard birds! The Wren seems to have a much larger beak than the wrens in the UK - could just be my imagination!ReplyDelete
Cheers - Stewart M - Australia
Wonderful birds you have in your yard!ReplyDelete
Very nice photographs of them, too!
Beautiful birds photos, Karen!ReplyDelete
Greetings, RW & SK
Gorgeous fotos, love much!ReplyDelete
What a cute little guy the wren is -- and if a bird is new to you it is a new bird and exciting, no matter how many other people have seen it. (Of course for amateur me, anytime I can get a photo it is an exciting bird --even if I've seen it a million times!) Love your nuthatches too.ReplyDelete
great catches and additions to the list! well done *VBS*ReplyDelete
