Leaving home

Today was a day full of excitement. The young House Wrens left the nest box for the first time in their life. The nest box is right in front of our house and it is fun to watch them during the whole breeding season.

Last feed

11:59 AM: The parents had called them from a nearby tree several times already and bring finally the last food to the young wrens.


12:03 PM: The second juvenile squeezes its wings out of the hole and flies over to the parents (I missed the first one).


12:12 PM: This is number four. His first flight ends on the lower part of a tree trunk.


12:13 PM: Number five, the last one, just dropped into the flower bed below the nest box. After several attempts he finally joined his family in the tree.

We hope they all will grow up and we may see them again.
