    Carolina Wren is resting on top of dead ‘perch tree’…feels something crawling in its feathers and goes after it…ends up with the bug on top of its beak.

    They areI But I think that's the bird's nostril, not a bug. Or at least the bug is in the same place as its nostril in the first photo.

    I had that same thought initially...tried to zoom it up but lost detail trying.
    In the end I finally concluded it was a little bug there based on the fact that there seems to be some 3D quality and bulk to it.
    Or at least when I look at the photo it does...but maybe I'm seeing an optical illusion or something, dunno.
    Just doesn't seem natural looking compared to the scores of Carolina Wren photos I've taken.
