Visitors in the Barn

Barn visitor

A pair of Carolina Wrens have been taking advantage of the quiet, empty barn to do what seems to be some nesting.  Carolina Wrens are perky little birds with upright tails and strong voices.  They also seem not to be terribly shy of nesting near humans.  Over the years I have found several nests on my front porches; in old wreaths and once directly over the front door.
