I have been waiting to get the new windows for our house and then I can take photos of birds that come to our tree in the front yard. However, I just happened to have my camera out and the blinds open when this little bird appeared. I saw the rusty back and knew it was a pretty bird, I thought it might be in the Finch family, but according to my Peterson's bird book, this bird is a Carolina Wren. The map shows that they are in our part of Texas along with other states. I had to do some work on this photo as the window is a bit cloudy. I got it cleared up using the intensify contrast (overlay) in my Aperture 3 program, to get rid of the hazy look and enhance the colors a bit.

    That is really a great capture. It is a definite wren...You can tell by the shape of the beak that curves..We get the House Wren's here and I love how they sing!

    A great shot of this pretty little bird. We have them all around here. They like to next in garages. If we leave the door open for any length of time, they come in to "case the joint" for possible nesting sites. Two of our neighbors have had them nesting in their garages this year. For little birds, they have the loudest call of any of the birds in the area.
