Have not seen these before and they are nesting in a box attached to our garden shed. Possibly a Carolina or Brenwick Wren? Size wise kind of like a slim sparrow. GliderJohn
That bird is known in serious bird watching circles as a little brown job
I'm/we're not 100% sold on the Carolina Wren ID, either but are less confident on the Bewick wren. I don't think the body coloring is appropriate for a Carolina Wren, but the missing white tip on tail feathers is the basis for my call. She and her family are very serious birders, especially her parents, but not as fluent about what's in John's part of the USA vs the Appalachians & east coast. Most of what I know about birds is how to properly clean, fabricate & cook them...Region & Locale means less re: typical species than years ago. We've had a pair of scissor tail flycatchers spending summers in the pastures/margins next to our house here in SC for the last few summer. I doubted what they were when I first saw them, knowing they're normally very far west of here. But that's what they are & apparently they're real celebrities for area bird watchers. Now we're watching to see if they'll be back this summer.
That's why bird watching is interesting , and why in certain bird families positive ID can be not so easy . To properly identify some birds it is helpful to have pictures with their wings extended also , in this case all we have are the two shots with folded wings . Even specific mating or feeding habits can be used . Our dinosaur friends are fun and interesting to observe , some of them are in direct lineage to creatures from millions of years long , some are a little more recent . Kinda makes you wonder if their really ancient ancestors like the T-Rex hopped about in a somewhat random fashion , chirping instead pf roaring Dusty
. "Nope.. too many twigs.." Mr. Wren makes another nest.. repeat. Finally she acquiesceses.. and they live happily ever after.
I am not a bird expert but we spend a lot of hours sitting on the deck with a big whiskey sour and a pair of binoculars and a bird book.. We vote Carolina Wren
I believe Dusty is right, Bewicks’s Wren. (DebbieKellyj
