While cleaning the guest room bathroom, I noticed movement out the bedroom window. A small house plant on the table was shifting in a breeze. I moved closer to see how much wind could be seen in the trees. While I was looking, a small bird landed on the table. I must have made it nervous because he didn't stay long.

While I was waiting I noticed that there appeared to be a nest built in the crate on the same table. I went to the porch to get a better look and a small bird flew out at me.
|Can you see the dry grass and branches in the corner? Ignore the dead Poinsettia.|
|I love the materials used to build this nest: Spanish Moss, Grapevine, dried twigs|
|These eggs are each the size of a dime!|
Click here to hear the song of a Carolina Wren. Breck and I have been hearing this a lot lately. Makes sense now that we know we have them around.
It will be fun to watch these guys hatch and grow. I may try to take the screen off the window to get better shots without disturbing the growing family. The nest opening faces the window.
So is this better than the snakes?
