WREN the Going Gets Tough...

...the tough get going!

two, very SHORT videos...



She flew off too quickly...

...But came back!




I hope, now that I know where she's building her nest [if she stays at it]...and there will be no house arrest in our area where it's mandatory to stay indoors and not get out, I can keep tabs on the outcome. Keep your fingers crossed for babies, and a promising outlook for the world of nature at least.  A Carolina Wren.

  1. A little wren, how I love them!!!! They have the bravery and heart of a lion. I sure hope you follow up with her, and show us the nest and babies.

    1. I'm hoping other birders haven't spotted her nest location so not to disturb her & I can get back out there to see more activity.

  2. she is so cute. so busy and getting ready for spring... adorable video... thanks for making me feel good. we are wondering here how long before they lock us down, the temptation of wonderful weather is tempting people to cluster together in outdoor spaces. they are now locking down beaches and parks, and I think soon it will be no one out but for food like other places.

  3. What a cute little wren.
    Around here there is a stay at home order but they are saying it's ok to go out for a walk. I just read on facebook yesterday that our local park was closed because they have no way of sanitizing the playground equipment or the tables and pavilions

    1. Most of our parks, no one would want to use them...full of bird poop!!! If they begin to close parks here, it'd be for numbers of people using them.

  4. Our state parks are closed for the duration, but city and county parks are still open and even the bathrooms are being sanitized daily. Keeping my spirits up to the best of my ability, Anni. I love that cute little wren. :-)

    1. I imagine, being state parks, it's nearly impossible to keep the port-o-potties and rest areas disinfected, that's why the closures? Yep, you and I...we'll get thru this together!!!

  6. Loved the little wren and realizing that life for them goes on as normal. I didn't even realize I had a nest on my porch till I found a cracked egg on the floor. Still haven't seen who it is yet.

    1. Yep, normal...but constantly full of tragedies sometimes & joy other times.

  7. Oh yes! The birds are oblivious of human concerns and doing what they do in the season for it. Robins here are all over the lawn eyeing my front porch rafters! Live goes on in the world of birds for sure. Mother Nature continues to rule.

  8. Love the little wren video. Here the feral cats are enjoying the spring... no virus worries for them. We love to watch them roll about and play in the tall grass out back.

  10. I love that no matter what - we still have singing birds and chirping squirrels! It’s raining here this morning and when I opened the front door to gaze out I heard a frog - or toad? For some reason it made my heart a bit lighter for standing on the porch and listening to it!

  15. I love all birds to some extent, but the Carolina Wren is at the top of the list. We always had a pair nesting somewhere at home...and I have two or three stories of them. They have such huge personalities. And such a big song from such a little body. I sure hope they survive...I bet if they do they will come back year after year as they did at home.

  17. What a busy lady that little wren is. I'm hoping for babies now too, for her. I can't imagine any of us being mandated to stay in the house and not go outside, can you? My goodness, our world certainly is in an upheaval right now. Love, Andrea XOXO
