Carolina wren

We have had a number of Carolina wrens in the yard for the past 2 weeks.
Loud singers first thing in the morning.

Thryothorus ludovicianus

The Carolina Wren is sensitive to cold weather, with the northern populations decreasing markedly after severe winters. The gradually increasing winter temperatures over the last century may have been responsible for the northward range expansion seen in the mid-1900s.
