Reynold the wren has been a regular around the feeders and has totally taken advantage of the mix I have kept out for him (lard, peanut butter, chick mash etc.). The Titmice have also been feeding on it. Yesterday, he beckoned in the Spring-like weather by starting his Teakettle song. Up to

Throughout the winter our feeders have been visited by a small c. Wren. Today it was joined by a notably larger one. Probably the other half of the pair that has nested here for several years. There is a clear size difference in that pair. If sex doesn’t account for size differentiation in

The pair of Carolina Wrens we have been feeding all winter have 4 or 5 fledgelings, which are growing rapidly and very active.  Tey are now eating  some bugs and peant butter on their own, though the parents still seem to be feeding them.     Dave Streater. --

Big day for Shirley. A CAROLINA WREN appeared beneath the suet feeder, picking up a few scraps dropped by the woodpeckers. We will have to wait to see if it is one of the wrens from previous years. They have nested in the eaves of the garage. Not only that, but they have endured the constant

A year or two ago, I put chicken wire around our double-caged suet-feeder (suet cage inside a bigger feeder cage) to stop the red-squirrel from sitting inside all day and excluding birds from the suet. This frustrated the squirrel all right, and small birds could get in and out. But I noticed
