The House Wrens arrived last week. I could tell by their melodious song. Last year a pair made a home in a box near the Alleyway, which is centrally located on the property. This year, they are smitten with a new box we put up a few weeks ago. It’s not too far from the box they (I think it’s the same pair) used last year. The new box has a smaller floor size than the standard Bluebird house, but it is taller. I watched the Wrens investigate this new option for a few days. A couple of days ago, I filmed the male singing his heart out as he coached Wifie to complete the nest with the finer grasses.
