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!

You sure make good use of that camera lens! I didn't think wrens would stay around this late.

TexWisGirl said...

You do get the most beautiful captures of the birds -- actually everything you photograph, Karen! They never fail to amaze me! I wish I could do one tenth as well as you!! Amazing! This one is such a little beauty! What a lovely way to start my day!!

What a little cutie! Do you ever see owls? I just read an article about them. I'll try to remember to write about it.

These are just amazing Karen!! I have a "tail less" one at my feeders, he won't pose for a picture!!

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.

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

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.

How lovely to see a wren this late in the year. We haven't had them around for quite awhile. Lovely photos.

wow. He is so cute:!:. How is your hawk?

Rambling Woods said...

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

Rambling Woods said...

whoops..it was Denise thinking about a bird bath...Michelle

David Gascoigne said...

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.

Ela said...

Wonderful pictures and so a beautful bird

Me said...

These are wonderful pic`s of Pip. He is adorable, Nicely done.
