I spy with my little eye


I spy with my little eye

just spotted this little wren peeping out from the nest box today, then he/she came in and out a few times with food ~ im hoping there are eggs and that they will hatch and fledge successfully. the oak tree is at the bottom of my garden.

Wonderful shot, wrens are so cute, such a lot of noise from a small bird (chirping at cats mainly!)

How lovely, I havent see the Wren nesting in a birdbox before, hope all goes well with the fledging! I have been following Blue Tits in one of my boxes at the nest building stage, havent seen them for over a week now so hope the nesting hasnt failed!

the wren looks very thin ~ so busy i suppose? ~ busy building the nest, ive seen her/him take in bits of straw and moss; and singing to fill the garden ~ as if to say ~ im so proud i have a house!!

Lovely picture just catching the wren. Perhaps they abandodned the nest built as they didn't feel safe enough there.

How lovely to have this little beauty nesting at the bottom of your garden.

dont think its there any more clarice

I think it's bird behaviour to become very quiet when on the nest...maybe you don't see them because they don't want anyone to see them?? I really hope this is the case. I miss my big bird/apartment/house....we had three or four families at once all coming and going. Watching them is better than television!
