This short film shows close ups of many bird species bathing and explains why birds bathe even on the iciest days. Have a peek at them in the spa.

 

Carolina Wren: the Winter Songster

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.
