A Little Birdie Told Me....
....that Main Street in Anderson is aflutter with dozens of Carolina Wrens roosting in some unusual spots. Stroll through our downtown and see if you can find them. Get a brochure at the campground office or at the Anderson Arts Center.
The Carolina Wren is the state bird of South Carolina. You are more likely to hear a Carolina Wren the see them. They are loud with a "tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle" warble. They are common in urban areas.
