Carolina Wrens are commonly found in the
southeastern United States and prefer
forests, clear cuts, and wooded suburban
areas with thick underbrush. The Carolina
Wren, like the House Wren, doesn't mind a
house that sways. The entrance is larger
than that of the House Wren nest box. The
extra width gives Carolina Wrens the
ability to carry wide sticks into their
house for nesting material. It hangs with
a metal chain and opens easily for
clean-out. Wrens are notorious for
filling up any conceivable nest cavity
with twigs, regardless of whether they
use the nest. Since male wrens build
several nests for the female to choose
from, hang several nest boxes at eye
level on partly sunlit tree limbs.
Carolina Wren houses should be hung 5 to
10 feet high near trees or tall shrubs.
Carolina Wrens begin breeding as early as
mid-March in some regions, in early April
