Carolina Wren (Thryothorus ludovicianus) fluffs up her feathers to stay warm as the blast of Arctic air arrives to give us the record breaking coldest weather since 1917. Most of us weren’t even born yet. Good luck little wren!
The Carolina Wren is cold sensitive and the populations decrease during severe winters. These little birds do not migrate. It sings one of the loudest songs per volume of bird, the Carolina Wren’s Song that humans like to call “tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle”. It is a loud little bird.
