Here is another view of the little Wren house. This is just out side my kitchen window, about 4 ft from where I am sitting. I have to shoot through the window screen.
Unlike the Painted Buntings, Titmice, Catbirds and Northern Parula Warblers….the Carolina Wren doesn’t seem to mind living close to us. They could see me while I was taking pictures and making the video…drinking my coffee etc…and they kept right on working.
When my Mother was here…she had a Carolina Wren that nested under the bathroom window. It was a small crank out window and each year for many years a Wren nested there. Sometimes my Mother would only be a foot or two away from her…she would sit right there and watch her but never left the nest, other than to eat or get food for the babies, until the babies were ready to go……and the following year , Mom would leave that window open so the little Wren would come back…..and she did. It may not have been the same one…possibly one that was raised there…but Mom always felt like she was waiting for an old friend to come to visit.
