Carolina Wren
Thryothorus ludovicianus
The Carolina Wren (Thryothorus ludovicianus) occurs across much of the eastern half of the United States, but it is essentially thought of as a bird of the southeast. Its loud and lively song is one commonly heard in suburban areas of virtually every city of the South and it often nests in hanging baskets or bird houses that people put out to attract it. It occurs in a wide range of habitats from forests to swamps to old field edges and golf course borders. It is a very familiar species to many of us. The first Carolina Wren shown here was photographed in November, 2002, in Bastrop State Park, Bastrop Co., Texas with a Canon EOS 1V and Canon EF500mm F4L IS lens with a 2X extender on Fuji Velvia. The bottom Carolina Wren was a digital capture with a Canon EOS D60 and 600 mm F4L IS lens in Gonzales Co., TX in January 2003.
The Carolina Wren shown here was in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, in December, 2008. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens and 1.4X extender.
The next two shots of a Carolina Wren were taken in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, in December, 2010, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and an EF 800mm F/5.6 L IS lens.
The next two shots of Carolina Wren were taken in eastern Travis Co., Texas, in March, 2014.
