Animal Wednesday - House Wrens

The House Wrens are nesting again. They have chosen the box just outside my office window. I am glad because I enjoy watching them come and go. The Mr sings a lot to protect his territory. I know when every cat in the neighborhood comes by. When he tunes up all I know that a cat or another bird has come into his territory. Happy Animal Wednesday everyone.

Aww, this is cute. I'm hearing lots of singing in the trees too. Didn't know that birds nest twice.

This is adorable...I've enjoyed watching the birds this summer, had a nest in the front yard that was so low in the tree we could look in it at the babies. Lovely work....hope you are well, have missed checking in.

great blog. I love wrens. Recently a student had stumbled onto Cornell's bird site and I recommened that he listen to the call of various birds, one of which was a house wren.
