Feed Me!

That’s what the baby house wrens are saying every time I am around the nest box. Feed me mamma! Or pappa, doesn’t matter, just FEED ME!

The babies are about 12 days old now, and starting to grow feathers and look more like the birds they will soon become.

This will be the last time I open the box and sneak a peak at the babies. In a week they should start venturing out into the world. At that point I’ll clean up the box, and get it ready for the next residents.

Birds, you better get your reservations in soon. These accomodations fill quickly!

  1. Great photos! They’re just too adorable. The little wren in the bottom photo looks like it’s definitely having a bad hair day 😛

    how precious! We had Robins build a nest over our gazebo enclosed bench swing this year. I was glad when they all flew out of the nest so we could start sitting in it again without making the parents alarmed.
    Just found your blog and I love it! I also live in SW IN and love to grow my garden organically. I am learning so much from your past posts! Enjoy the sunshine..looks like the storms have left us 🙂

    They grow so fast! I can hardly believe it. I am glad you are taking such care with them, Villager — and I hope your next residents are birds you don’t feel ambivalent towards. 🙂

    Wow! Super cute little birdies. We have several types of wren around here, maybe I should invite them a nest box…
