Carolina wren and moss

Carolina Wren and moss, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Right outside my desk window, this little wren and her domestic partner built a nest inside our burned out BBQ (we wanted to junk it years ago, but it's the "nest of choice" every year to some nuptial pair so we don't dare move it). I've tagged a set of six photos that show the nest inside the BBQ and her partner, if anyone is interested. Look carefully for the ones where the heads are poking out the back of the BBQ.

They are makeing a great nest! I would never be able to get rid of the grill either. They are too cute and industrious -- love seeing all their nesting materials. (Domestic partner :-))

How fun! Wrens are so perky looking and it's so much fun to watch them build their nests. I saw a wren a few days ago as I walked down the driveway to get our paper. It was on a low hanging pecan branch about 2 feet away from me. We looked at each other about a minute.

I enjoyed the series!

Those are great -- and I, too, love your domestic partner designation:-)
