_MG_8393 New Nest in My Front Entryway

Shot at a distance from double paned transom - low light in that area - marginal ISO, but I got it. It's so much fun to watch these lively, raucous little Carolina Wrens

Great shot. Not only great fun to watch as she raises her family, but their song is a delight. Isabel, I have read that they tend to remain in a small area throughout their lives. Do you think this is the same little wren you've had nesting in prior years? We have what I think is the same family return year after year to raise their young. Mama wren, in years past, has built her nest in a bucket in the greenhouse, in a flower pot on my potting table and in a flower pot sitting in a chair under the deck. Lovely and entertaining little birds. I would not want to be without them.

Stunning shot Isabel - this looks so sweet! So nice to have them so near by!

What fun that must be!! Those birdies know a good thing when they see it. And the babies can even learn how to fly in a protected area! Great photo of them, and in such difficult conditions!

Don't place that skillet on a hot stove! You are blessed to have them near you.

I bet you are glad that they are not disturbed by the removal. How much fun to watch for babies!
