Since we moved into our home in late September, I’ve always seen Carolina wrens in the backyard. Some days there are two but always at least one looking around for food. They sit on the bird feeder or the plants and sing for a while.
One morning I was home in early April and saw one bringing nesting stuff to the hanging plant in front of the window.
All day I watched as both wrens brought stuff into the plant. They were building a nest in there. I would see one stay inside the plant and dig around.
Pausing before heading into the plant, or was he posing for me?
The only shot I could get of both bringing in sticks at the same time.
Sitting on the edge at the end of the day. I didn’t see them again for a few days and thought maybe they abandoned it. I’ve heard they will build several before nesting. All of the above were taken through the window.
One morning I went outside to water the plants and saw her sitting inside. I was assuming she was sitting on eggs. Very exciting.
Occasionally I would see the male stop by.
One morning she left the nest for a few minutes and I peeked in and saw 5 tiny eggs. More to come on this story.
