House Wrens

The ubiquitous House Wren is a seasonal favorite: they’re energetic, bug-eating machines, and apt to sing throughout the day. Of the three nest boxes near the brushy borders of my lawn, two are occupied by wren families. The third was claimed and filled by a male during the mating season, but rejected by his mate in favor of of a box nearby, the one anchored to a garden fence post.

    • Thanks Gunta. I was weeding in the vicinity of that wren family, watching the bug deliveries every few minutes, when i realized that I’ve overlooked an obvious photo op for years and had nothing to get excited about in my photo inventory!
