Common Winter Birds of Chatham-Kent

In Chatham-Kent, the Carolina Wren is a common inhabitant of tangles, undergrowth, suburbs, gardens, and towns. Flourishing in the undergrowth of deciduous or mixed woods and thriving in thickets along forest edges, this adaptable bird also makes its home in suburban areas where dense low growth and tangles remain undisturbed. Notably, during the winter months, they shift their diet to seeds and berries and can be spotted around certain bird feeders and native plants. This showcases the Carolina Wren’s versatility and contributes to the vibrant avian life in both residential and natural environments.
