Nesting Wrens

As we approach the summer solstice the House Wrens that occupy a nest box on my garden fence are working overtime to feed their young. They flit about in shrubby thickets and weedy patches snatching up all sorts of insect life – bees, crane flies, caterpillars – anything goes for these bug-eating machines!HouseWren18June16#0468E2c8x10

When I move too close to the nest box, I get scolded with nervous chatter and a fluttering posture before the meal is delivered!

I hope everyone gets fed well because I’m looking forward to seeing  little fledglings escape into daylight!
