Experience Matters


The Wrens move in every year and although pushy and a tad bossy, they, too, need places to live.  Besides they are so cute!!  

So one afternoon as I sat on the deck with the Pres while he read his afternoon paper, I spotted this genius.

Trying and trying to get the slender brown twig into the entrance, it refused to give up.  When I saw it cock it's head back as if to say, "Hmmmm...how can I get this in there?" I watched closely.  Slowly and carefully it readjusted it's grip and positioning of the twig and before I knew it, the twig was in!




Showing you that experience matters

Good morning, cute series on the wren. They do seem loud and bossy. Have a happy day!

So now I know that when someone calls me a bird brain that's not such a bad thing because birds are pretty smart :)

I love watching the wrens...not to mention listening to their wonderful "trills" as they go about their work. The other day we saw one trying to get what appeared to be a dryer sheet they found somewhere into their house. The dryer sheet was bigger than the wren and it was dropped at least 2x as it tried and tried. Finally it got it stuffed inside and was trilling with glee. A few minutes later another wren went in the house and we saw the dryer sheet being shoved out. It drifted to the ground, and in less than a 1/2 hour a robin came by and scooped it up and flew it up to her nest in the Cedar tree. The circle of life... or circle of life of a dryer sheet!! Fun!

I'm just imagining the grousing inside that birdhouse when 'she' came home and found what 'he' had added--haha.
Our wrens are gone.

A pear shaped nest. How wonderful and yes birds are pretty determined to get their nest built.

Wonderful! I should put some bird houses up next spring. The little birds are so clever, and interesting and delightful!
