They've Moved In!

Last year I blogged about a wren house I made from a cigar box. For the last several days House Wrens (Troglodytes aedon) have been singing in the garden. When I checked the gourd house I've had for years and the cigar box, both had nesting materials stuffed in them. This morning, as I enjoyed the garden for a while before work, it became clear that they've chosen the cigar box as their home. I welcome them and look forward to seeing some fledglings eventually!

Bright idea Mark! The cigar box is a wonderful idea..the sliding area would work well to clean it out.
