Wrens at Work

Aren't they just the cutest?! We think they'll be out of the nest by the end of this week. The fern, of course, looks pitiful as I haven't been watering it. I didn't want to flood the wren family. Frankly, by now it's a mystery to us how four very plump baby birds still fit in that tiny nest!

I'll have some great photos for you tomorrow. Daniel went kayaking yesterday and got some beautiful shots.

I hope you all had a great weekend! I hope to visit you all these next couple of days!!

P.S. The wrens all flew the coop today - adorable - I got to see them up close and personal. Although I am very sad to say that one of them fell victim to one of a neighbor's numerous cats. And here I was worried about Ramses...


  1. How adorable! Those wrens are so fast!

  2. Yay...that is so awesome...what beauties!! Thanks for sharing such magic Silke! Wrens are so magical..what a blessing to have them in your midst!
