There’s so much more than just filling feeders involved in getting birds to consider your property a bird mecca. This film offers solid advice about what birds want in their environment.
Diminutive House Wrens and Carolina Wrens consider themselves barons of the brush pile. They rule with effervescent song. (But the House Wren has a dark side that the Carolina Wren does not.)

On cold winter days, birds are tiny furnaces that must be stoked. We provide them with seeds, bark butter, nuts, water, and berries. They congregate to gobble it up.

Coupla days ago I heard two male Carolina Wrens singing near each other. I don’t know whether it was a duet or a territorial proclamation, but I’d bet on the latter, just knowing the spunky spirit of wrens in general. What I DO know is that, although the song was similar to a Cardinal’s, it was a Carolina Wren. He is the winter songster. Both birds sound a lot alike, and it can take some patience to tell them apart. But the Cardinal isn’t going to start singing again in Missouri until the latter half of January.
