Carolina wren on the front porch early today.
My favorite tiny bird who is waking me these mornings with raucous calls
to its mate. I love how the wren goes to the feeder, digs out a favorite, always
a peanut, brings it quietly to the bricks, tucks it into a groove to help hold it
steady, then nibbling commences. Sunflower seeds are ignored. . . . .a lot
of work for one peanut meal.
The birds are very busy performing obvious mating rituals and starting nest
building, with non-stop eating requiring the feeders to be stocked almost daily.
They need to keep their strength up!
I'm sure I'll have the usual 'bird observations' in the coming weeks. . . . . all part
of springtime in my garden.
Enjoy a lovely Sunday - hopefully with pretty birds to watch.
