I have a Winter Wren nesting in my begonia.  It's so cute and its song is pretty.

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.

This is one variety of the Black-and-Yellow Broadbill. They range in color from black and yellow to black with some yellow and some pink and then some are just black and pink, like this beauty! They do all have the bright blue bill, however.
