Carolina Wren Building A Nest

House Wren Building A Nest

House Wren Building A Nest

We had a few spring visitors to the yard this week, including a gold-crowned kinglet, a red-winged blackbird and two Carolina wrens. We can hear the wrens loud and clear every morning. The male Carolina wren is building several nests in hopes of impressing the female. One spot he chose is a drawer in an outdoor sink above the garden hose. Mike put out the birdcam to photograph him as he builds the nest. Here are two of the better photos. We are really hopeful that the female likes this spot so that we get to watch the whole process. Last year we saw the male put many sticks into our duck house, but the nest was never finished and used. We are trying to keep things quiet out there for them so they don't get scared off, which means spring yard clean up will have to wait for a bit, and this seems like the perfect situation for that birdcam that Chris was semi-opposed to.
