Nesting Materials and Noisy Wrens

Received my new all time favorite "Birders World" magazine. There was article about nesting materials. It said that if we place twigs in small piles around the yard the Male House Wren will gather it up as he has a big job. He just doesn't build one nest he builds lots of nests for his sweatheart. When she comes to meet him, she inspects his nests and OUCH~! She chooses the nest site that she likes and then she tears the nest apart that he maticulousy built just for her and the off spring. She throws all the twigs out of the nest and rebuilds it herself. That is a lot of work. When she is done they are both happy. He sits in a near by branch and sings his song of series of bubbling liquid trills. If you have a nest nearby your house forget about sleeping in ~in the morning.. This little guy will wake you up at 4:30 and keep singing until you say "Uncle" and you get up and make coffee and go outside and hear the musical spring songs of all the birds. What a joy~!~! I love spring and all that God has to offer us in all the things that he made for us to enjoy.
