The Winter Wren

31C09A6F-9843-4FA7-972D-A01F2D2CF53D“Don’t you think your plan is a bit radical?” Elliot asked.

“I think my plan is an optimum plan, actually,” Carol said.

“Why would you say that?”

Because.”

“Because why?”

“Because it’s winter, obviously.” Carol responded.

“I know it’s winter, but what does that have to do with your plan to feed that damn tenacious little bird that is always hanging around our porch making such a racket?” Elliot asked.

“That little bird is a wren, and I just want to make sure it’s well-fed and warm,” Carol said.

“But I still think putting an electric heater over the bird feeder is a bit radical,” Elliot said.

    I hope the wren does not get electrocuted by the electric heater when it takes its bird bath.

          I’m not sure. We used to be their SUMMER residence, but now they show up in the winter … so maybe these guys Summer in Canada and drop down into northern California and New England in Winter. But they used to be how I knew it really WAS spring. Changing climate.

    It’s a very radical and dangerous plan. Good one, Fandango

    I’ve often wondered if maybe I should heat the feeders too. Those little wrens are really LOUD!
