What’s he really doing? You may not believe your own eyes…

Carolina Wren eating mealworm

Shooting a Carolina Wren at my worm feeder, I witnessed a sight that made me gape. I still couldn’t quite believe it till I made a video loop from the stills. It’s undeniable…

First, tap this VIDEO LOOP of all the stills:


Yes, this little Wren is playing with his food! Like a child tossing popcorn into the air and catching it in his mouth, this little guy is doing the same with a freeze-dried mealworm snatched from the feeder.

I have never encountered a more stunning and clear example of a bird enjoying the fun of life, absorbed in play.

Now examine the stills! Tap any photo to enlarge it, then tap the dart to start a slide show:
