Carolina Wren in Crabapple Tree

My crabapple tree still has plenty of fruit even after many flocks of robins have come through on their way south. The tart crabapples may taste bitter, but birds gobble them down when they're hungry. In this painting, a Carolina wren perches on a limb and may take a peck or two at the crabapples. I expect that by spring there will still be fruit left on the tree. Even if it's shriveled and dry, the returning birds will find them and finish them off before the first leaves appear.
