Carolina Wrens are back

The Carolina Wrens seem to like our bear birdhouse.  Last year when we first hung it out, they nested in it right away.  Stephen and Sue were nice enough to send us pictures of the new additions to our Boone family.  Last year’s hatchling were seen in early July.

This year is a much earlier roosting, perhaps because of the mild winter.  Carolina Wrens usually roost for about 2 weeks and lay 4 – 6 eggs.  The eggs are creamy or light pink wiht brown markings.  They hae been known to roost in unusual places such as mailboxes and car bumpers.

If you are at the cabin and manage to get photos of the fledgling, please send them to me!
