He's got some growing up to do before he will be up to that task. If they would stay away from the bird feeders, and just tackle rodents, they would be more than welcome to hang around here.

We once had a Carolina wren nest in one of the planters on the front porch. Eggs had hatched and the babies were inside the nest. One day they just vanished, and I found a rather plump gray rat snake resting peacefully underneath that planter. Connie wasn't too happy about that.

We've found several gray rat snakes because the Carolina wrens had found them and were squawking like crazy. They make a pretty distinctive noise when a snake or a cat is around.
