A House for Every Wren

By josh • Nature, Wildlife • 29 May 2014

I built a couple of wren/chickadee houses last year using some old license plates and hung one of them just outside our dining room window.  Nobody used it last year, but this spring we have a male house wren building a nest inside.

It’s been great to watch him bringing plant fibers in from around the yard and stocking the nest, and the female has been showing some interest.  I don’t know how many other nests he’s built around the neighborhood, but hopefully she chooses this one!

 

I only wish I hadn’t put the house so close to our bedroom window.  The chatter is near constant, and starts very, very early.
