Come and experience the world of birds with me. You don't have to go far - just out your back door!
After having wrens nest here the past couple of years, we haven't seen any at all this year. I suppose the loss of habitat either side has encouraged them to go elsewhere :-(
We've lived in our house for 24 years now and have watched the neighborhood around us change. I've noticed that the bird population of my yard has changed over that time, and, like you, Jayne, I attribute it mostly to the loss of habitat and the changing character of the neighborhood. The good news is that if you plant your yard to attract the birds and make it a welcoming place for them, sometimes they do come back and sometimes you will get an even greater diversity of feathered residents. It's something to strive for.
That's a sweet bird.
Wrens are among my favorite backyard birds, Gail.
Great picture. One of my favorite birds.
What's not to like about a sweet little Carolina Wren?
