Birdie Mama, Who Are You?

There is a nest in the lamp on our patio. Three or four little speckled eggs are in there. Until today, I have only gotten quick glimpses of the parent bird and have been unable to identify the bird. I took this picture of the parent bird Sunday afternoon.

While looking to identify another bird that visited today, I came across this picture.  It is a picture of a Carolina Wren, the state bird of South Carolina.

It appears to me that our Mama and Papa are Carolina Wrens, which we think is super cool! We are living in Texas, but we came here from South Carolina, where I was born and we both were raised. 🙂

Have a blessed day, y’all!

  2. Suzanne,

    I knew this was a wren and I thought it could be a Carolina Wren but wasn’t sure until you confirmed it. He’s a long way from home, huh? Great capture!

    • Thanks, Cathy. Yes, a very long way from home. We both are. This bird being here makes me a little less – and more – homesick. Yes, I know. I’m a nutcase. haha
      Have a blessed night. 🙂


      • Suzanne, you’re not a nutcase for being homesick. I understand. I don’t get homesick because my parents moved after I got married and where they live while it certainly is home it’s not my childhood home. I miss them more than the home itself. Maybe these little wrens are visiting you because they know you miss home. 🙂

        • Thanks, Cathy. 🙂 Why did your parents move from your childhood home? I am sorry that you don’t get to see your parents more often.
          I think you’re right. The little wrens are trying to help me realize that home is here, too.
          Have a blessed day. 🙂
