Happy National Bird Day! Here is a little Carolina Wren to mark the day. They are small birds, but their songs are mighty! Here’s to a mighty great new year to you all!
This little free bird, perched in the open frame work of the old clothesline pole in my yard, is a Carolina Wren. The distinctive white eyebrow makes it easy to identify as a wren. Here, it is patiently waiting its turn at the feeder.

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.
