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".
