Meet the wrens!

Meet the wrens!


I was out feeding the birds this morning when I heard the familiar “cheep cheep cheep” of baby birds. 

I was delighted to find that Mr. and Mrs. Wren had made a nest and a little family in the gourd I bought a few months ago. 
 I thought it was very colorful and a welcoming home, and apparently they did, too!
Mrs. fussed mightily at me when I tried to get close and see the babies inside, but they were too far back to get a glimpse of them, much less a photo, so I left them in peace.



Cute, isn’t it?

    Diana: I have some of those gourds hanging around and need to make some houses out of them. That one is so cute and it does make a great home.

    Layanee — It is cute, but I didn’t hollow it out or paint it! Though it’s one of those things I’d look at and say, I could do that, but then never do, so I just bought it!

    A lovely home for the Wren family. So glad they chose it and you have the pleasure of watching them.

    What a colorful home for your wrens Diana. I have those sweet little birds in our garden too. I just love watching them skittering around collecting bugs for their brood.

    beckie – I keep sneaking out there to watch the Mama from afar. It’s amazing how they nurture those babies.

    Lisa — and how they fuss at anyone that gets too close, like other birds or the neighbor’s cat, or ME!

    Shellmo – it is too cute, isn’t it. Not sure how easy it will be to clean out, though…
