News about the House Wrens

Female with spider

A couple weeks ago I reported that the House Wrens get ready for another offspring. I don't know how many eggs have been in the nest but the female wren is definitely feeding another brood. I have not seen or heard the male in the last few days and I wonder if he got caught by a predator or just moved on to a different place. It is not uncommon that the females feed the young wrens just alone.

"House cleaning"

After a badly needed rain today the light was good for a few shots at the nest box. No harsh light and shadows today!  ;-)  The female did an excellent job bringing spiders and moths and with each turn she did also some "house cleaning". As written here before, the first brood this year got destroyed but now we have hope that the second one will lead to a new generation of House Wrens.
