Carolina Wren Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Carolina Wrens are typically a bird of the southeastern and eastern United States, with a normal range that's marked on most range maps as ending a few hundred miles south of South Dakota. However, we do get occasional sightings, and might expect more in the coming years as climate change makes a South Dakota winter not quite the obstacle it once was.

Evidently they sometimes breed in far southeastern South Dakota as well! I've only had a couple of encounters with Carolina Wrens in South Dakota. The photos below are from Good Earth State Park in August, 2020, where there were at least 2 or 3 birds present, with the birds below looking like scruffy first-year birds.
