The Wren kept switching boxes and after he had it all fixed up and waiting for his Mrs. here would come the sparrow. The Male will make many nests and then the female will pick the one she wants.
All of these nest boxes are located under this Oak tree. One year I set up a blind, but now I just sit either in the flower garden on the black wrought iron chairs, or on a little bench hiding behind part of the leaves that hang down
This morning I was determined to get a few shots of this bird wherever it was living.. I have been hearing it and seeing it go under there for a week or so. When pursuing bird pictures you have to have two things. Time and Patience. You set up , sit down and wait and wait and wait...... These wrens usually come in 10 - 15 minute intervals. So you have to be ready. They are usually in and out in a matter of seconds.
This morning it paid off!
Here he or she came with a big fat bug!
Open wide, baby, here it comes.
Doing a little housekeeping while he is at it.
and that is a Wren in a "CAT" box.
