Right at the very northernmost limit of their range, two Carolina Wrens are settling in for winter in a garden west of Montreal. A serendipitous snatch of hand-held video.

** The first Wren appears from behind the dark chain-mesh feeder at about 12s and the second flies in to join it at 30s. I suggest you enlarge the video to full screen by clicking the icon bottom right of the YouTube screen.


The map below shows sightings of Carolina Wrens in Montreal this November … as you can see, not many at all. I do know of one other about 2km east of here but it has doesn’t seem to have been posted to eBird so doesn’t show on this map.
