Hi Mary! Ava just means a link to a site about this species, not necessarily what you may have used to identify it. If you Google "carolina wren" or any other bird in the US, likely the first two links that pop up are the wikipedia page for the species and the All About Birds page for the species. You can then put either of these links into the reference fields so others can use them to find out more information on the species that you may not have included in your description or habitat sections. The All About Birds pages are especially useful as they give identification, life history, the song, and videos of the species, as well as show you other birds you may confuse with it and how to tell them apart. Here is the one for Carolina Wren, 6 years ago

Hello Ava T-B. I'm thoroughly confused about the reference field. I have bird books that I use all the time for the birds but don't have any website that I log onto. Guess i can't put pictures on if I can't reference a website. I tried putting in the Peterson Guide to Birds but won't go into the reference field. Would appreciate a response. Thank you. 6 years ago

Thank you "allicelongmartin" for the nice comment. I've been trying to get a good picture of the carolina wren for quite a while now and finally got one when the little wren stopped just for a moment on the feeder.

This is a lovely spotting. To make it complete, and useful to researchers using this site for data, please edit this and add a reference about this species in the reference field of your spotting. Please do this for each photo you post. Thanks for helping to make Project Noah a complete reference tool for scientists.

Good picture! They are so active they are often hard to pin down in a good picture.
