Monthly Image: Wren Traffic

A pair of wrens, having found the new entrance reducer entirely satisfactory, set up housekeeping in the front bird box and raised their nestlings.

Somehow, they manage to fly directly into the hole without stopping:

Wren - front box - entering
Wren – front box – entering

Outbound trips require a security check:

Wren - front box - exit check
Wren – front box – exit check

And away!

Wren - front box - fly away
Wren – front box – fly away

After those nestlings fledged, they began building a nest in one of the garden bird boxes a few hundred feet away. In short order, we’ll be awash in wrens!
