Trapped bird a Carolina wren

Thu, December 06, 2012

Thanks to all of you who sent me pictures and suggestions as to the bird I found in my sticky trap the other day.

The winning entry came from fellow outdoor writer Chris Young of Springfield, who saw the feathers in the trap and suggested the bird was a Carolina wren. He even sent this picture.

I can tell you that the bird I saw looked little like that pretty picture. He had sticky trap all over his head!

Some have asked why I didn’t get a picture, but every time I put the trap down it started flying away. So I had to keep it under control.


Jeff, I had two of those hopping all over me during bow season as I sat in my camo in my stand. They were the most curious birds and were everywhere from the top of my head to my bow and shoulders.

It was a riot!

I have a pair that nest in my garage every spring!  Cool little guys!  Hatched out 5 this year!  I rescued 2 from the cat and they all made it as far as I know!

In a random conversation with my father tonight he starts talking about all the sticky traps he has in the garage and in his shop for mice.  He then tells me he caught two wrens in the same trap at the same time earlier this week.  There must be something about those traps that they like.
