New Life in the Wild

The other day I was walking out to check on the activity at the bee hive when I came across a little family of Carolina Wrens . . . the babies were just leaving the nest and the parents were trying to encourage them to fly. I hurried back inside to get my camera and was able to capture one of the little guys in a photo before he flew/hopped/crash-landed over to where the rest of his family was . . .


It's little things like this cute (and entertaining!) little wren that help to add enjoyment to a day . . . simple pleasures that I am always thankful to see and enjoy!

  1. Oh just look at that little guy! It looks like a gangly adolescent--all feet and legs!

    It is a good thing God made little birds so durable and bouncy. They DO seem to take quite a few hard spills and crash landings at first, don't they? :)

  2. How sweet! They are such tiny little things, yet give us so much pleasure.

  4. He's so cute! We have a couple baby Robins and Sparrows hopping around our yard. I just love seeing the little baby birds! Maybe one of these days I'll have a chance to take pictures too. :)

  6. He does look a little gangly, doesn’t he, Miss Linda?! :) Your comment made me laugh . . . yes, the little birds do have quite the experience learning how to fly, yet their many crashes don’t seem to faze them!

  7. They do give quite a bit of pleasure for something so tiny, don’t they, Elizabeth? It always brings a smile to my face to see things such as this!

  8. He was, Miss Sarah! It sure was fun watching him, too. How neat that you have baby robins and sparrows to see and enjoy. That is one thing that I love about this time of year . . . all of the baby wildlife!

  9. They do indeed, Anne! What a blessing it is to be able to see and enjoy the birds and other wildlife . . . and this time of year it is especially so what with all of the young ones around!

  11. Dear Sarah,

    Oh, how cute! I love Carolina Wrens; they have such a fun personality (although they always seem to be scolding when I'm around). We have a nest of them in our shed, but haven't seen any babies yet. I hope we can get a picture of ours like you did of yours!

    Love,

    Marqueta

  12. Just beautiful! We live in Australia so there are no Carolina wrens here. Thanks for sharing.
    God bless you :)

  13. With blogger being down and then them removing some of the old posts on peoples' blogs for a time, I ended up losing some of your all's comments and my replies to all of them. So sorry about that!

  14. I believe Blogger intends to restore the posts and comments that were taken off during the outage. I believe we just need to possess our souls in patience a little longer! :)

  15. Hi Sarah!

    I'm sorry that you lost some of your comments...so did I. Hopefully they will be back soon. If they do come back, you can delete this one, and save the other one :)

    Aw...such a cute little bird! My little sister, Faith (1), would like him! One of her favorite things to do recently is watch out the window for birds. When she sees them she says "Bird-ie, Bird-ie"! It is so precious!

    Blessings, Sarah!

  16. Thank you for letting me know, Miss Linda! From what I have read, it does sound like the posts and comments will all be restored. And as you shared, we'll just have to practice patience until if/when that takes place! :)

  17. I am sorry that you lost comments as well, Bethany! Yes, hopefully they will be back soon.

    Your little sister, Faith, sounds so sweet! I could just picture her looking out the window and watching the birds . . . as you shared, it's so precious. Thank you for sharing!

  18. What a cute little guy! I love Carolina Wrens.

    I lost a ton of stuff during the blogger outage. Mostly design changes I had made...they didn't restore those! Oh, well. :)

  19. I love the Carolina Wrens as well, Joy. They seem like such a cheerful little bird!

    I am sorry that you lost so much during the blogger outage. It sounds like most people lost at least something!

  20. How cute! When we were younger there was a set of books that followed birds and other animals in and around a farmyard. And the Wrens were part of the main characters of one book so this post and picture brings back many memories of the stories ;o)

  21. Glad this post could bring back good memories for you, Nabila! The books sound like fun ones. :)
