This little wren loves living here, and has built nests every year in a box full of tools, or in between two flower pots next to a door, in between my broom and walking sticks, you name it.

It bounces and hops around the patio bobbing it’s body up and down making a “chip chip chip” call, exploring the furniture, and whatever else is sitting around outside. It’s pretty loud for a small bird (which is probably why I often notice when it’s around calling for attention) but the bobbing up and down cuteness factor really can’t be beat.

You can throw a stone in the suburbs and hit a robin (but please don't!) however I've only seen ONE the entire time I've been out here at Middle Way. Weird!

Carolina Chickadee

Another bird that is all gussied up and ready for a night on the town (and is also TOO cute!)

Cedar Waxwing

The lushes of the bird world, Cedar Waxwings love fruit and berries so much, they are known to get intoxicated or even die from overripe berries.

Eastern Whippoorwill

I can't in good conscience have people camp here in the summer knowing that the Whippoorwill will be whooping ALL NIGHT LONG. Seriously. It's a bit much.
