52 Birds: Carolina Wren

This week's 52 Birds illustration is the Carolina wren, the state bird of South Carolina.  These adorable birds are also frequently spotted all over the eastern part of the United States during warmer weather, including here in West Virginia.  

I spotted my first Carolina wren a couple of summers ago, when I heard it's very loud song in our backyard, and finally discovered him perking in a pine tree, singing his heart out.  

This year, we've had an unusually mild winter, so they are still sticking around, frequenting the feeders and the trees around our house.

As always, 52 Birds prints are in my Etsy shop, and throw pillows, etc can be found in my Society 6 shop.
