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.
Thank you for the video.. I saw these little wrens last year at my birdfeeder here in Baie d’Urfe. didn’t know this was what they were called!! will keep a keener eye looking out for them.
That’s good news Laura. This species (not to be confused with the commoner House and Winter Wrens), are quite common down in the US but only appeared in very small numbers in Montreal a few years ago, probably helped by climate change. They don’t migrate and rely on good feeders to get them through our winters. Now established here, but rare.
