Carolina Wren, Thryothorus ludovicianus

A blast from the past. (And more info here.)

Wow, how cool was that info. Very, I know and like East Lansing very much, I used to live in Lansing, still have relatives there too! Such a pretty little wren! Not too many birds gathering around my bird-bath lately, but the crows are out for my doggie doo!

Cute little fellow, looks well-fed—er, —greased!

He's puffed-up because of the cold, Jim H.

But yes, the local wrens are well-greased!

I love those leetle birds. Of course my fave leetle bird is still the nuthatch. :)

They are cute little birds.

Just dropping in here (as opposed to Thers' place) to announce that Spring is at last here. We've had signs of sparrow movement recently (temporary influxes of Juncos and then of Song Sparrows), but this morning the first Grackle of Spring appeared. That's it for winter, and I hope you had a chance to see one of the Snowy Owls and oddball waterfowl that have been all over the place this winter! They'll be leaving us soon, I suspect.
Note - disclaimers may apply, and Snowpocalypses like this coming weekend may not be covered.

JohnR, I have yet to a see a snowy owl on the mountain.

As for our oddball waterfowl, the Muscovy Ducks...I think the second bout of zero degree temperatures did them in. They went from 5 to 3 to 1, and I haven't seen any in a few weeks.
