Just in case,
I leave their nests in the window boxes
and old plant hangers and roosting baskets in the holly,
so the Carolina Wrens can survive the frosty night
after a day spent munching my peanut butter suet.
Inside I use blow-up beds for our 13 guests. I watch them all settle in
and I think about other beings caught in the cold.
That’s what the world needs: food all round and safe, roosting places.
Just in case.
This is a roosting basket in use in the breeding season for these two Carolina Wrens. Leaving the baskets out for winter use makes sense. I don’t know if the two wrens use it at once though:
