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.

with a voice like a diva

and springs in its feet
