Possible abandoned house wren nest?
by Laura S.
(East Aurora, NY)
PLEASE HELP! I am not sure what to do, if anything. I have a small bird house in the lilac tree outside my bedroom window.
I have been enjoying watching the mother bring insects to her fledglings (I can see at least two) and video taping them for the past two days.
She literally feeds her babies from sun up until sundown. However, I have not seen her all morning long today.
I am worried something may have happened to her; or could this be how wrens get their fledglings to leave the nest? The babies have been chirping nonstop all morning.
It's now early afternoon and still no sign of parent birds. Should I be concerned? Is there anything I can/should do?See Also:House Wren HabitsBuying or Building a Wren House? Read This First
