House Wren Calls
Took the wreath off front door that they loved to build nests in after twice shooing them out of the living room! Now they have built their home in the grandkids little kitchen cupboard on the back patio for the past five years. Fun to watch the babies with the kids. But this year the nest was abandoned with three eggs left in it. I'm afraid of what happened to mama. We have a lot of hawks...
Out skirts of Jim Thorpe Pa. Top of mountain. Landed on deckrail of my screen porch singing. Ate feast of rosie red maple moths off screen door. Then built nest in the top of my propane tank.
When I was a child and growing up on a small farm in south-central Ohio, there would be many of these little creatures hanging around. I remember my father having a seed spreader with a small bag attached. One late Spring day I went to the barn where the bag was hanging and discovered that a Wren had built a nest in the bag. As a child I watch the eggs hatch, the little ones get larger from the insects their mother brought each day, and then watched them fly off 3 weeks later. How many of our children see and love the ways of nature today?
I discovered a nest in a tall flower pot on our patio under a geranium plant. The birds are hard working parents, feeding their babies throughout the day. They seem to like insects & worms, not birdseed. I named the mother Bertie. Thanks for the identification! Now we know that Bertie is a House Wren. The babies are growing quickly. Wondering when they learn to fly?
Put a birdhouse in my backyard maple tree. A wren has made its home in there. Found this site with the sound to identify the type of bird. Glad we could provide a home for the little fella
House Wrens have made a home a small bird house in backyard maple tree. Love the song that goes on and on repeating through the day! (Carmel, Indiana)

We put up a bluebird birdhouse this spring and the wrens have taken it over! To watch them trying to get sticks into their new home is hysterical! Every inch is filled with sticks! If there are eggs in there we cannot begin to see them! Mamma bird is flying in and out more often! We are waiting patiently to see the family!
we have a greenhouse that right now has become a winter home to two wrens.
never again will I use the phrase, "bird brain" without reverence. both birds have discovered how to come and go as they please by way of the louver that is open just enough to let air in so that the heater won't turn off.
we are now card-carrying members of a "mutual admiration society."
Have a birdhouse on my deck that has been used by chickadees for past few years. This year the Wrens have taken over and have a houseful of noisy babies. Really cute and so musical. My grandchildren just love to watch and listen to them. I'm from Peterborough, Ontario- Aug. 9, 2017.
I've just discovered that the little brown bird nesting in one of my birdhouses is a house wren. Male and female are very attentive to their babies and are extremely protective of the nest if we are get too close.
