A Winter Wren: One of England's Well-Loved Birds! This is actually a Carolina Wren, identified as such by the warm reddish brown back, buffy underparts and white stripe above the eye. This bird is also much bigger than a Winter Wren.
Remember having parakeets growing up. They and parrots have always been part of the family. Currently have a Green cheeked conure who is just a joy to play with. As another pinner stated, it is "a privilege" to be friends with an animal.
