Carolina Wren

Thanks to all who bid

Carolina Wren
This painting is 4 x 6", oil on board, unframed


Most everyone is familiar with the little vocal wren.

There are nine species found in North America, the Carolina Wren being one. Wrens seem to be telling us to "not give up" as they build their nests in just about anything they can find, often turning this way and that to fit a long twig through a tiny opening of the nest. They are quite busy little birds and a male will often build a number of nests until he pleases his mate. Wrens are so much fun to watch and make up in antics what they lack in coloration.
