The Carolina Wren (Thryothorus ludovicianus) is commonly found in dense, brushy tangles within woods. Although it is large for a wren, it is still a small bird, growing 5.5-6 inches long with a wingspan of about 7.5 inches. Both males and females are reddish-brown in color and have long, bold white "eyebrows". They can be found foraging on the ground, eating insects, tree frogs, and some vegetable matter. They make their nests of twigs, mosses, rootlets, bark, and sometimes snakeskin lined with fine materials, and placed in a natural cavity or other places, including pails, brush piles and mailboxes. Their song is a loud, repeated three-part phrase, like "tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle".
Did You Know?
All Trout have a protective membrane or "slime coat" that covers their scales and is their first line of defense against infection and disease. Damage to this coating can severely hurt the fish. Wetting your hands or limiting contact with the fish increases the likelihood that the fish will survive.
