A house wren and cardinal for today
Two bird houses in my garden have been occupied by busy little house wrens for the past few weeks. The babies in bird house #1 fledged a few days ago without me noticing - but I couldn't help but notice that the babies in box #2 fledged today. The mother spent the morning scolding me if I even dared look out the window and the babies made a very noisy departure. Later, while outside, I was lucky enough to see one of the babies - not much bigger than a mouse, trying to hide in the vinca while momma wren fussed overhead. SO cute! It made my morning. So this morning's activities inspired me to paint a house wren.
