I know I just featured Carolina Wrens in a recent post, but I couldn’t resist posting a few more photos. I’ve seen these beautiful wrens on suet feeders and platform feeders, but I hadn’t seen them looking for food under feeding stations before. Severe weather can cause abnormal feeding behaviors among birds.

Carolina Wrens, as I’ve mentioned before, are a southern bird expanding its range northward. They’ve been well established in southern New England for years and are now starting to firmly establish its population in the middle of New England. They’ve been in southern New Hampshire and Vermont for years, but are really starting to gain a strong foothold there now.

Northward from there, I suspect.
