Bird of the Month – Carolina Wren

Carolina Wren   Thryothorus ludovicianus   L 5 1/2″   (14 cm)

Deep, rusty-brown above; warm buff below; white throat & prominent white eye stripe. Vivacious, melodious songs that are clear and extremely loud- teakettle tea-kettle teakettle tea or cheery cheery cheery. There are over a dozen variaions of songs and will sing any time of day any day of the year. Range is common, concealing underbrush of moist woodlands and swamps, wooded suburbs. Non-migratory, but after mild winters resident populations expand north range. After harsh winters, range limits retract. They tend to eat insects and worms.
