Wren Interesting Nesting Choice
Baby House Wren 's ready to feed
I first noticed this bird in May, by the short aggressive calls that were very loud from such a small bird.
I figured the bird was looking for a mate. Then I noticed the bird bringing items to the nest; in the most oddest places possible.
It is on my balcony behind a chair within a corner caddy on top of some old college books at a barely erect wooden door.
I placed a cushion on the concrete floor of the opening. This was in case this would be the chosen nest and any babies fell out.
The Wren began to build its nest! During its calls for several days had attracted other birds, not the same species.
Then I noticed the bird had a possible mate they would hop on the tree branches in front of our balcony.
Why this fun exciting bird decided to find this odd out of the way spot to possibly home their babies is beyond me, however it is the beauty of nature.
I said to myself this bird is either going to never find a mate or just abandon the nest entirely.
We often go out on the balcony and see the bird fly and do a couple of calls at the beginning as if to warn us "to stay away" now I think are just use to us.
Now, she/he just flies to the nearest tree. I have had the opportunity to take pictures of the whole process from the nest building, the eggs and the baby birds in the nest.
Now that the babies have hatched (3)? out of 5 eggs. I try not to go out there as often, so I do not disturb the beauty of nature.
I do take pictures and the Mama bird seems to fly out of the nest and go to the nearest tree, with surprisingly no aggressive sounds or swoops.
During a photo, I made a sound to mimic the bird call and each time I noticed the babies open their mouths as if to feed.(enjoy the picture)
My intentions are not to disturb nature.
I will continue to watch this miracle and please feel free to make a comment and add your email so you can follow along with the process.
