I spent days watching the Carolina wren family as the parents visited the nesting box where four of their babies were safely tucked away. I knew the babies would fledge soon, so I was reluctant to get too far away; I wanted to see them fly into the world! Alas! I missed it! Just because I slept too late this morning! The babies had flown the coop by the time I got up and was I disappointed! I did manage to find one hiding in some shrubs, though, and I got this shot as it looked up into the big new world! Too cute! I love its little “pigtails” and stubby tail.
