House Wrens


House Wren nest! Couldn't see the little guys in there, but definitely heard them. Both parents were giving them a feeding frenzy! Camera Critters Bird Photography Weekly

Aw, these are marvelous. You have a great talent for capturing birdies. And, well, pretty much everything else, too. :)

House wrens building a house. How appropriate. Cheers!

Adorable first shot with the tail for balance like a tightrope walker with an umbrella. Such a thrill to see them at their nest. In our part of the world the ducks in the city at sea level already have ducklings although it is still winter. Here in the foothills with the effect of the adiabatic lapse rate they are just starting to sing their courtship songs.

One of my favorites, I love how fearless they seem for a small bird.

Gorgeous shots of the House Wrens with their bounty Jill! Pretty late in the season, I wonder if they are on their second brood?

Wrens are so industrious and you have caught them at their finest!

Lovely shots of the house wrens, Jill! Those with prey in their beaks are awesome!

The nestlings are lucky to have parents that are such good insect hunters. Beautiful photos!
