The House Wren’s Nesting


“IMG_1245”
”The male begins placing sticks into prospective nest holes. He may build as many as twelve different nesting sites.
After pairing with a mate, the male takes the female to each of the nesting sites he has begun building.
The female selects the one she likes and begins to fill the nest completely with more twigs.”



“IMG_1251"
The width of the entrance is 1.5 inches(about two quarter size)


IMG_1259“After choosing and rebuilding the nest, the female will lay one egg each day until a clutch of 5 or 6 eggs are laid.”We had four eggs.” Incubation
time last 12-15 days.” “After the eggs hatch, it will take another 16-17 days before the young leave the cavity.”We had four eggs this year.


“IMG_1344"
The nest is very deep and you can’t see what’s  inside. I had to put the iPhone inside the nest to capture the photo.


IMG_1371Look pretty healthy


“3F9B2929"I didn’t know why the chick was standing and looking out for several hours

“IMG_1384"The chick left the nest while we had our grandsons visit and had dinner together.It took 14 days to hatch and 11days to leave the cavity.It was unusually hot days.

“If you're trying to attract other cavity nesting birds such as Bluebirds, you may not want to allow House Wrens to nest around your property. Wrens will take over the nest of other birds by destroying eggs. “ Now I understand  why our bluebirds didn’t come back to their nest this year.
