Wren which is with us 12 Months a Year: Sept. 19, 2022

Carolina wrens are non-migratory and frequent vegetated habitats such as brushy thickets, lowland swamps, bottomland woods and ravines. The Scarborough Bluffs are perfect for them. This is about as far north as they go but they can be found all over the eastern United States and into Mexico. Insects and spiders make up the bulk of this wren’s diet though some plant material is also eaten.

There is usually one by the Guild Inn and there was this morning.

NATURE POETRY

Warm summer sun,
Shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind,
Blow softly here.
Green sod above,
Lie light, lie light.
Good night, dear heart,
Good night, good night.     – Mark Twain
