Carolina Wren Study

One of my favorite backyard birds is the Carolina Wren. Every other year a couple build their nest in our garage. The first time it was in a box of fishing supplies. The second time was in a lawn mower bag hanging high on the wall. We had a lot of fun watching them come and go and really enjoyed watching the young wrens learn to fly and leave the nest.

A friend of mine had a wren build a nest in his motorcyle helmet in his garage. They can be a little distructive but I don't mind.

This study will be used in an upcoming oil painting.
