Default Bewick's wren year round.

I have Bewick's wrens the year round, they have nested here also.

I love wrens...although with bluebirds nesting here, I'm a little wary of the house wrens.

Carolina wrens are cute, inquisitive birds. I'm not very familiar with Bewick's, but they are nice-looking birds too.

Lovely photos as usual Kildale.
You get a real sense of the wrens.
I particularly like the 1st photo with the moss? on the branch.

Nice shots, though I'm not familiar with the Bewick's wren. Are the branches they're on the ones you set up on your deck as landing perches for you shots so that you can avoid taking pictures with the feeder in them???

I've implemented that branches trick myself for years since moving here. I should've realized that it is not an original idea.

Is that the same type of bird as your avatar?

Your avatar's a marsh wren? Have you more photos of those?
Yours appears much the same with the stripes by the eye although its tail does appear more brown than the Bewick's
