The Persistent Wren III

I am saddened to report that last night a nefarious critter raided our wren’s nest, turned over the pitcher in which she had labored so diligently to build a nest for her young, and made off with the contents. Missing were the two hatchlings and the rest of the eggs. The usual suspect is our local raccoon.

We have faith that Mrs. Wren will continue to be persistent in her efforts to raise a new family. We will be on the lookout for her next nest building project.

One Response to The Persistent Wren III

  1. So sad, but I guess it’s Mother Nature’s way; what was once bird is now raccoon. I have a Carolina wren nest in a rediculous place, which I will post about this week.
