House wren assessing whether this is - or is not - the perfect nesting place
Last week, a house wren moved into our neighbourhood. Into our garden, actually.
A longer view
At first the wren was all alone. It appeared to be calling out hour after hour for a mate to join it: Look what I found! I'll be a great mom (or dad).
Cleaning out the former nest
On speculation, it began house cleaning. Earlier this year, a chickadee family occupied this dwelling and left the place sooo untidy!
However, last July a house wren lived here. (Hmmm. Could this have been the same one?) Truth be told, the chickadees also had to clean up before moving in.
Happiness is singing your heart out
Well, cleanliness must be next to Godliness, as the saying goes: Yoohoo! Are you out there? The house is ready!
