The Carolina wren is the largest wren in the eastern United States, with the Florida wren being a close second. It is marked conspicuously with a white stripe above the eyes, and both male and female have the same coloration. The birds are reddish or cinnamon brown above and buff-colored below. They have white chins and very narrow black barrings on the wings. Peterson describes his observations of a nesting Carolina wren.
