We have visitors

I was sitting at the computer last week....and something kept catching my eye as it moved past the window....here's what it turned out to be:

(not this exact bird 'cause the little rascals are too fast to get their pic!!)

It was actually both the male and the female wrens....each with their mouths full of sticks and moss....taking turns building a nest....here:

Actually...building a nest...in here:

Now....normally I wouldn't like it...and back in the spring a robin tried to build on top of this wreath and I kept taking down her nest, until finally I just brought the entire wreath in the house until she found a tree like any normal bird would!!!!

I know....I'm a meanie!!!!

But...here's the thing....my Daddy loved wrens....actually my Daddy loved birds....but he loved what he called "Jenny wren". So...when those tiny little brown birds started making a home to start their family in that little ceramic birdhouse....I didn't have the heart to tear it down....just because of my Daddy!!!

Updates as things progress!!!
