House Wrens Housekeeping

On Mother's Day, a few weeks ago, my mom gave me the cutest little log cabin style bird house.  My husband and I hung it up when I got home later that day and I've been watching it ever since.

This morning, a very vocal songster commanded my attention as I was filling up the feeders. He was perched right near the little bird house and then, to my delight, he went inside it.  As I continued to watch throughout the morning, I realized there was a pair of House Wrens industriously setting up house!  How exciting!

I took some photos - they didn't seem to mind. I'm anxious to see how things turn out.

He wasn't very afraid of me and let me walk quite close
