Babe in the Woods

This tiny Carolina Wren has been visiting our deck recently. 

The little thing is barely out of diapers, 

its stubby tail scarcely protruding from its backside, 

but it can already fend for itself, 

gathering sunflower seeds that the goldfinches spill in their hurry.

Carolina wren

with a voice like a diva

and springs in its feet

Hello Connie,
Funny shot of this little beautiful bird. It's nice to see this little one with his great colors.
Maybe there is a litter in your neighborhood where this special bird come from?!

Many greetings,
