Lovely, lovely gentle and witty blogpost – you have me chuckling here, as well as being amazed at the detail you see around you. Your photos are a joy – thank you 🙂
Thank you! Just a summary of my daily thinking process — what do I know about that creature, what do I need to know, what creature was I never even aware of before? 🙂

Great way to get us all guessing I say. I thought I saw a Carolina Wren at one of my feeders the othet day…love the photos…
I see them around the house much more often than I see them in the woods. I think he was out in the open due to it’s being spring. I read a section about them in The Singing Life of Birds by Donald Kroodsma, and he said he can’t really separate when their singing is to claim territory and when it is to advertise for a mate.
I hear them outside alot but don’t see them as they are in the trees. This time of year probably has a lot to do with mating. We have a pair of chimney sweeps on back porch just waiting to get to the nest…going to be a bit as a wren or finch (hard to tell at this point) is sitting on nest .
Reminds me of a child asking questions!
Just my inner child talking to my older, wiser advisor self! 🙂
