Carolina wren

I'm cheating a little because this is a picture from 2009 - a different house, a different bird, but we had a pair of these lovelies at our suet today! I wasn't fast enough to get a picture, but I knew I had one (shaded though it is) at the blog. I adore these little Carolina Wrens. They are tiny, bright brown, their tail feathers stand straight up and they are so spirited! Their song is unbelievable. In my older post here I have links to their calls. I have found through the years they show up in late winter - and here they were today. Loving the suet that had fallen on the ground. 

Also at the feeders - the bluebird! So he (they) haven't left our habitat, which is nice. And all the regulars were here too, as well as a huge and handsome woodpecker with a vibrant red head - though oddly enough I believe he is called a Red-bellied Woodpecker!

Rainy day ... snow is melting fast. Tonight brings heavy rain and high winds (like, 50 mph!) and then cleaning tomorrow, temps near 60.
