Carolina Wren in a maple tree on November 4, 2020. We bought common bird seed earlier this week for the neighborhood squirrels. A pie dish was used for a bowl and the seed was set on the balcony. It did not take long for the squirrels to notice but the birds were a bit slower. Chickadees and titmice were the first birds to discover the seed. Two wrens discovered it today, calling back and forth to each other while perched on my bird branches above the seed. They flew up into the maple, perching with a nice vibrant background. The colors on the leaves look more like spring than fall.
The birds are more cooperative when the sliding glass door is opened for sharper shooting. The squirrels are more leery and run off when the same is done to them. The squirrels managed to knock down all the branches and toss seed all across the balcony.
