As readers know, the Carolina Wrens made quite a splash this summer. They made the nesting story of the season by raising two broods in our bird bottle. Those two broods have been growing up quickly and the wrens are seemingly everywhere. I think they have been losing the battle at the suet feeders (to catbirds!) but have dominated at the exterminator role, clearing our deck quite effectively! This species is well prepared for the winter and a good nesting season in 2015.
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
