Wrens Nest?

Wrens Nest?

I was going to throw out this basket work pot, but stuffed it into the trellis by the side fence, that's because I cut down their favourite shrub. I think male Wrens make several nests hoping a female might chose one in which to raise a family.

We sometimes see a Wren in the garden, also a nest in a sprawley Clematis, but I've cut it down drastically earlier.

You are right, the males often make up to 6 nests. when she selects the one he then lines it with moss and feathers.

that is a lovely sight.

I have wrens and robins nesting in the same shrub. Hope there's no arguments later in the spring

It's the Blackbirds that cause the arguments in my garden, Andrew.

Kate, I think this nest is too exposed, they like a tangle of vegetation.

Sadly, you’re probably right. We had a pair nesting in our juniper tree the other summer. We were very fortunate.

HOW LOVELY TO SEE THAT. WE HAVE STARTED TO SEE A WREN IN THE GARDEN AND IT WAS PECKING AWAY AT THE MOSS THAT HAS GROWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SHED.

That's great Linda, obviously a male making a nest to entice a female.
