During a lunch time walk across campus on July 3, 2006 I came upon a pair of Carolina Wrens.  In front of Fine Arts there was a "flock" of Starlings.  Some were hunting food while others were sunning themselves with their wings spread at odd angles.  As I walk I disturbed their activities and I noticed two smaller birds in the trees.  I saw the large white stripe above the eye and knew these were Carolina Wrens.  In the clip you can see the bird ripping up the leaf litter in search of food.

On the way back I was able to get some head-on video of this bird.  These birds are nesting in the area.  I saw a baby clinging sideways to the trunk of a tree.  It was flapping it's wings and "demanding" food from the parent.  It was full sized and flew off before I could capture same video.

Late Friday afternoon July 7, 2006 I again found this bird in the same area - the Quad area by Fine Arts.  I noticed it on a tree and thought it was eating bugs.  As it turns out I think it was eating sap that was oozing or percolating from the tree. 

The markings on the tree are from the sap.

On the evening of September 14, 2006 I heard a bird behind BSB.  I captured some audio but it took me a while to find the bird.  It darted from one end of the building to the other and I able to see it for a second.  It was a Carolina Wren.
