What Carolina Wrens eat in the winter

Carolina Wrens are primarily insect eaters, but they will also eat some fruits and seeds. Suets, mealworms and peanuts are good substitutes for scarce insects. They can be attracted to your feeders by providing a brush pile close to your feeding area. They feel more secure with a place to seek refuge nearby.

More Facts:

• A single male Carolina Wren can sing up to forty different songs – up to 3,000 times in a single day.
• Unlike other wren species, only the male Carolina Wren sings the loud song.
• A pair bond may form between a male and a female Carolina Wren at any time of the year, and the pair will stay together for life. Members of a pair stay together on their territory year-round, and forage and move around the territory together.
