A few days ago I was trying to catch up on my blog reading, and saw that Kelly at Red and the Peanut had gotten some fabulous shots of a Carolina wren. I was bitterly jealous. I love these little birds, squat and perky fluff balls. Lori calls them "chubby chubkins".
We had put out a suet cake in a cage, nailed to the balcony, to try and encourage the bluebirds to come. While we haven't been able to coax the bluebirds out of the crab apple, we did get a pair of wrens, much to my delight!
The pair went to work on the suet, doing a little synchronized dance.
Oh, I just want to pinch their little cheeks!!
