Introducing Carolina. This little birdie looked so sweet perched in my dogwood tree. I believe it to be a Carolina Wren based on online comparisons of birds seen in Virginia. One identifier is the prominent white eyebrow stripe.
I learned that these birds live in pairs all year long, sing duets and may mate for life. Only the male carolina wren sings a loud song and the female chatters.
Introducing Curtis, an energetic little squirrel that is often seen in my backyard. He scurries up and down the trees for playtime with other squirrels and sometimes seems to be guarding his territory by chasing them from his favored trees so he can savor the tasty rewards. He will balance and stretch to take nibbles from the white oak tree.
I believe I can tell him apart from the others by watching his behavior. He is the champion.
