One of the things we most enjoy about wrens is their sassy nature. They are inquisitive, busy, always curious. Wrens love brush piles and areas choked with vines, tangles and bushes.
A shy bird, the Carolina wren is more often heard than seen, but we do find that pishing brings them in close to join in a fight. (For more on pishing, see White-Eyed Vireo.)
An insect eater in proper season, the wren eats seeds during the winter, and is also known to frequent suet feeders.
It is one of the few birds which pair-bond outside of nesting season, a bond which lasts a lifetime.
