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:

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:
