Wrens of North America sketch

Wrens of North America by Tammy Irvine (contact Good Nature Publishing for information on ordering this new print 1-800 631 3086

Tammy Irvine sent me this sketch with these birds illustrated in an attractive horizontal format. I feel as though the little ones have come to visit. How many have you seen?

Wrens of North America

Cactus Wren, Canyon Wren, Rock Wren, Bewicks Wren, House Wren, Winter Wren, Sedge Wren, Carolina Wren and Marsh Wren.

Do you love wrens like I do? I like the little wrens as much as I love raptors. When I was growing up, wrens, cedar waxwings, robins, and grackles made our back yard alive --

Wrens peck, creep and flit along, enchanting us in their careful search for food. They blend in with the dead leaves on the ground or bark of a tree, so seeing through their camouflage makes observing their little bodies in constant motion a visual treat.

I enjoy their subtle coloring, their silent approach to life, and the graceful way they ponder and fly through bush and bramble. Where robin can sit like a sentry on the ground-- buddha like trance state feeling the ground for movement and dinner below their feet, brother and sister wren keep a steady eye out for prey and predators.

Good Nature is making a poster, and maybe a long post card that folds out.
