The Carolina Wren creeps around vegetated areas and scoots up and down tree trunks in search of insects and fruit. It explores yards, garages and woodpiles, sometimes nesting there! This wren often cocks its tail upward while foraging and holds it down when singing. Carolina Wren defend their territories with constant singing; they aggressively scold and chase off intruders.  Hear the Wren’s song

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on her own wings. Always believe in yourself.
