I have had two very tame Carolina Wrens for the past 8 or 10 years. (Not the same original pair.). They wait at my kitchen door to be feed meal worms. They also like chopped up suet. They don’t like the riff raft of a crowd so when the titmouse and white-throats move in for the meal worms, the C Wrens take off. During the recent cold spell, they came 4 - 5 times a day. They also go to bed early, usually around 3 pm, depending on the time of year, but are one of the first to show in the a.m. They are my sunshine during the bleak winter and I get very upset when they go missing. The female takes off frequently (bad girl) and sometime the male leaves to search for her, but thankfully he's always returned. I know she’s left him when he starts wailing (screaming!). A couple of times a third C Wren has shown up but disappears in a day or two or has pushed out the resident C Wren and a change over has taken place. But like Kathy, I worry about them all the time and all year long.
