The birds are gone now, but it was very cool to have them in our door…
April 20, 2007
I wrote in my last post about the Carolina wrens who have made their nest in the wreath on our front door. They are beginning to hatch. I wanted to devote a post just to them.
In this artificial wreath is a very real nest…
We discovered the nest with eggs on April 20th
Yesterday May 2nd, I noticed that one had hatched. Tried to get a photo, but it didn’t turn out very good, and I didn’t want to disturb them any more.
I took the next two photos tonight. It’s hard to see them all, but I think three have hatched now. It is so neat to watch their little lives begin.
Here they are on May 17th. Ready to Fly!
Today they flew away! I am anxious to see if they come back to the nest to rest or what. It has been a real learning experience for me. Here’s the empty nest… or is that a bird toilet?
