It's about this time every year one of my favorite things (if I can have a favorite thing about the ending of spring!) happens—the first brood of baby wrens leave their nest! And if I'm lucky enough, I get to see them as they go. This time I was extra lucky and got some photos to share with you!
For this year's nesting site, the parent wrens chose an open bag of potting soil—bags of some kind seem to always be their top choice.
One last nap before leaving home!
This one was the last to leave. I love the little tufts of down still on their heads. So cute!
In just a short while these wrens will be flying and singing in the treetops!
