We have two paris of House Wrens nesting right now at our home, Bobolink Farm. Yes, we know, wrens are an acquired taste. But, for entertainment value alone, we appreciate them. Their bubbly song rings through the garden when most other birds have stopped singing. One of our pair of wrens has fledgings who chatter from all over the garden. The other pair, pictured above, has young about to fledge and both parents are busy bringing food at a frenetic rate. When both arrive at once determined to squeeze into the entrance hole, you have a wren collison. One went in and the other fluttered to a nearby shrub waiting its turn. They keep us amused.
