Pipsqueak

It was so nice to see this little guy (Pipsqueak) on the brush pile over the weekend.
I haven't seen him since October 
 
Carolina Wren

We live slightly above the northern most tip of their range,
so they are not often seen here at this time of year.


Our autumn was warm, and before today, we have only had one covering of snow,
that disappeared quite quickly.
 

I hope the brush pile will help protect him over the winter, because 
it's -6 this morning, with a light covering of snow.
I think winter has arrived!

  21. I only know this bird from blogs but Pipsqueak is so cute and I'd love to see him (or one of his close relatives) in real life someday. Glad he came back.

  22. Karen, we had two of these Carolina Wrens trapped on our porch this morning. I'm happy to see them around here since we changed from growing zone 7A to zone 7B , thanks to Climate Change. Dianne

  23. Knowing how those little guys are so active, like our Common Wren, I think your pictures are brilliant Karen.

    Thanks for your kind thoughts, the glass or two of Grenache Noir is hitting a sweet spot.

  41. Sweet little wren and amazing photos as always Karen..I think you had mentioned a bird bath in a comment. If you have an outside plug, it is easy to find one. I have used Amazon or other places. I have one on the deck railing and one on the ground for rabbits and deer.. They are as busy as the feeders...Michelle

  43. Carolina Wren is certainly more common than it formerly was here in southern Ontario, but I think the cold temperatures we are getting so early in the winter are going to push the species to its limit.
