Return of the House Wrens

It’s been difficult to spend much time in the backyard as our lives have been overrun with radiation and chemo treatments, negotiating doctor’s appointments, health insurance, pharmacies, closing a business, and the like. About 2 weeks ago, I decided that we needed to give ourselves at least a fifteen minute break in the garden each day. The very first day, we were rewarded with finding a new family of house wrens who had moved into our birdhouse! Please see my blog of March 10, 2012 in the Archives entitled,”Nesting House Wrens” for information on the nesting pattern of the wrens. If anyone can identify the white object the wren is holding in her mouth, I’m really curious to know what it is!
