Here's a picture of the new additions to the Carolina Wren family living on our lanai. Three hatched last Thursday, and I'm not sure when the other two hatched. Do you count five birds too? We weren't really sure, but five is what we see in the picture. The nest is wedged in between an inner pot and an outer decorative pot for my Christmas cactus, so it's hard to see. I waited a few days to take a picture, so I wouldn't disturb them when they were really small.
The adult birds go back and forth with food from early in the morning, until late at night. I put some sunflower seeds near the nest, but no one is eating them. But beetles and worms in our area should look out! That seems to be their food of choice.
Copper is outside sometimes, but the Wrens don't mind. They just go right past him. When he lays right under the nest they do seem to yell at him, which he is oblivious too. I just let him in so he stays out of the way. Those little ones get noisier every day! At first you couldn't hear them inside our house, but now there is no doubt when Mom or Dad have arrived with some food! I'll be sure to keep you updated on the new family!
