I had a Carolina Wren in my backyard today (106 Rothwell Drive) at the birdbath (12:15 p.m.) and next door at the neighbours' feeder. This may or may not be the same bird that spent last winter here...its plumage is in rough shape and so would either be a juvenile or a bird in moult. I have just heard it again - the call is like a rapid, high-pitched grey treefrog trill - at 6:30 p.m. in the neighbour's backyard. It appears to be sticking within the block bordered by Rothwell Drive and Naskapi Drive. Incidentaly, it seems to take great interest in the activities of other neighbourhood birds (goldfinches, white-throated sparrows and chickadees).
