Carolina Wren, Thryothorus ludovicianus
Several years ago, I bought the fish from the clay artist who always had the booth behind me at the Pink Palace Craft Show in Memphis, thinking it would make a great home for art-minded wrens. I hung it by the front door and waited til spring. Then til the next spring. And so on, until this year. I was sitting on my porch spinning wool when I realized the wrens had moved in and were already raising a family. The camera was about ten feet from the nest for the pictures of the adults.
