Wren Nest in Drawer

Wren Nest in Drawer

I was removing all furniture to paint my deck.

I moved the plant on top of this table which had a small drawer in it. I felt it's a little heavier than usual so opened the drawer. Wow.

There was a nest inside of the drawer with 4 little white eggs(April 24, 2020).

I let my family know and my wife told me to stay away and don't do anything until the baby birds are able to fly out.

I was curious to know what kind of bird they are so I watch. After hours of watching, I find out that they were House Wrens.

It was interesting and very relaxing to watch their movement every day. I got pictures and videos.

So my deck painting project is pending. I don't know for how long.

My dear wife does not even let us go out to the deck until these all birds are free.

We went out of town for a couple of days. After we got back on May 17, 2020, I didn't see bird activity feeding their baby.

The next day I open the drawer slowly. The nest was empty. I missed watching them fly away.

I decided to move furniture the next day for preparing to paint the deck. before I moved the table, I open the drawers, surprisingly there was one egg on May 18, 2020.

Confused, I thought I might miss that maybe the bad egg didn't get to hatch. The next day I wanted to move things on deck to cleaning up so soon I can start painting.

I decided to bury that one egg so it does not smell if rotten. I open the drawer. There were two eggs. They are back already.

We are going to have a second round in the same nest. More Wren babies!

This time I'll watch every day until baby bird's fly away on June 26, 2020. I gave this bird a name "CHIBE".
