Wren Nesting in Roosting Pocket
by Tess Hutton
I could not believe how near and open this wren had chosen to build its nest. We have had this roosting basket for two years and never had a bird even look at it.
Beginning of the year I moved it to where I could see it better in case we had a visitor.
Update now is that he now has a wife and Mr Wren is busy keeping her happy. We have worked out approximately when she will lay.
This photo took me about two hours to capture. It was a cold rainy afternoon but I stayed watching and waiting. I think you will agree that it was worth it.
I love taking the camera out to see what nature pics I can discover, at the moment my tripod is out side most dry days so this new happy family will get used to it. I shall be placing a chair out next.
Who knows, perhaps I will get that photo we all hope to get of our new family feeding and dare I hope for that first flight of the next generation of Wrens.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed taking it and now looking and sharing it.
