House Wren

House Wren 

House Wren 

We almost missed this little wren because we were so preoccupied with watching the orioles. The duck house is only a few feet from our chairs on the dock, and Chris looked over (instead of up at the orioles), and told Mike there is a tiny bird in the duck house. It was throwing out all the wood shavings that we placed in there for ducks. We read that the male house wren will select several nesting places and start them with some twigs, and then the female will select which one she likes and finish it. We're not sure which part of the process this was, but it was fun to watch.
