wrens are the cutest things! we have bluebirds and their houses, but the wrens will nest in the strangest places. One year they nested in an open bag of fertilizer.

Think the sparrows ousted the wrens around here. Still hear them but haven't found a nest.
LOVE that daylily. Very pretty.

I love your wren babies. I can just hear momma fussing at you...and the baby face is adorable!

We have more hummers this year than we've had in several years. There must have been close to 20 out there this morning. I have 3 feeders that I am filling sometimes twice a day. I keep trying to get pictures but none worth sharing. I'm sure there are babies in the crowd because some are smaller than the others.

Lucky you still getting daylilies.

Oh, those house wrens can raise a racket, for sure. There's one that visits us here at the cabin. We have a number of hummers around, too.

We can see a lot of deer on any given day, including fawns with lots of spots still. On our way in today, we saw 11 of them including a couple of bucks.

Cute wrens. One of our neighbors has a little shed w/windows...both screens are torn, the wrens nest inside that shed.
I have blue birds in my blue bird houses...mounted facing NE and about 6' off the ground.
Pretty day lily...is that the strawberry one?

VE, we have oodles of hummers too, way more than usual. I've counted as many as 10 between the 4 front porch feeders but they say we only see 1/3 of the population in the area at any one time.
I'm filling 4 hour glass feeders every day & 2 others every other day. Last week it was filling a couple of times a day for just a few days.
Surely they aren't starting their migration yet??? Cause I often get 20-30 for a day or two when they do that.

Cute! Lucky you to get a shot in the nest. I would have had to get on a 8' ladder to take pic of my babies. Don't think Mama would approve!

gaKaren, it is time for the males to begin migration. They leave a while before the females and the juveniles do.

So cute! It's unreal how such a small bird can have such a loud call.
