Carolina Wren

Species Details

This compact brown bird with a white eyebrow stripe flies in short bursts and skulks through low vegetation. The male sings loudly “toot-a-lee”, toot-a-lee, toot-a-lee”, the female often responding with a low-pitched “churrr”. The pair raises large broods in an unkempt nest of leaves and sometimes paper trash, in natural cavities near the ground, or under the shelter of porches and other man-made structures.
