Health Checkup by the Wren

One of the reasons my spring pansies look so nice is that this little Carolina wren goes through each and every leaf and blossom and looks for little bugs to eat. He also probably leaves some calling cards that the pansies like!


Here he is all done and seemingly performing a stretch after all that poking and peaking. Click on the photos for a better view.

How lucky you are to have your own 'wren inspector.' And I can't believe how much the Carolina Wrens look like our Bewick's here in California, except ours are more gray instead of brown. I love these saucy little birds above all others!

We have a bird that eats the food right out of the dog's bowl.
