Carolina Wren In Song

Carolina Wren

I’ve kept my camera out in the kitchen for a couple of months now, hoping to catch the birds. This little Carolina Wren provided a fleeting moment before he flew away after singing a very short tune; tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle!

The shots are courtesy of my Dad’s old Minolta 70-210mm f4 autofocus lens. Adapted to my digital mirrorless camera, it has to be manually focused and there is no image stabilization. I remedied that by resting the end of the lens on the window frame and holding my breath as I took the photos.

I would love to know what he’s saying. I just hope he wasn’t broadcasting to the bird world that my blueberries are ready!
