Every year we have a nest of Eastern Phoebes above the door to a maintenance room. This year, the Carolina Wrens decided to build onto the previous years Eastern Phoebe nest. For about 2 weeks we've seen the parents come and go with building matierials and eventually mealworms collected from the Pond Diets we set out daily.
3 Carolina Wrens on Thursday April 15th
If you look closely, you can see the various materials that the birds use to build nests: a Great Horned Owl feather, pieces of astroturf, leaves, grasses, mosses, plastic wrapper.
As I was leaving Saturday, I noticed this little guy.
Carolina Wren fledgling!
One of the babies had fledged! The others are soon to follow.
