We still have our pair of Carolina wrens. They've been eating hulled sunflower seeds, peanut pieces, beef suet, and in especially cold weather I add frozen crickets/mealworms (left from when I rehabbed birds). We also keep the garage window cracked a couple inches year around (something we learned from Carol Thompson years ago). It's not messy as one might think.
