Watch and listen as a Carolina Wren feeds its hungry baby birds. We’re up close and in HD with Front Yard Video. Can you identify what the babies are eating?

According to Audubon.org and biokids.UMich.edu, Carolina wrens breed between March and October. Both parents bring insects (caterpillars, beetles, grasshoppers, crickets, snails, and even spiders) to their nestlings for 12-14 days after the eggs hatch, and for a few weeks after they leave the nest. Berries and seeds can also be on the menu. Mom and Dad often sing in duet.
