The Wren: Part 2

Happy Spring Everyone!

I'm still diligently tapping away at my craft room cleaning, and today is so sunny and lovely that I have all of my blinds open letting the sun shine in as I work!  It's wonderful!

Since it is the first day of spring, I thought I'd share a few pictures from my little adventure that happened this time last year...

The wren that laid eggs in my wreath!

This was one of the most awesome things that I've gotten to experience.  The little birds were in my wreath for 14 days before I watched them all fly away!

These are them on day 5.  They're starting to get furry and you can really see their little beaks!

This is two days later.  They're up and chirping lots and lots now, waiting for mom and dad to come feed them!

And this is day 9.  Eyes are finally open!  They can actually see me taking pictures of them now, but they didn't seem to care too much.  If they were chirping, though, they would get a bit quiet when I peeked in.

And this is day 14, the last day in the nest!  They actually have feathers and are walking around (and sitting on each other's heads)!

The next day when I came home from work they were fluttering around and one flew out in my face!  I got to watch the second one hopping around and took a short video I posted over on my Facebook page!  It was so awesome. 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their spring!  Maybe you'll have some little birds living on your front door this year too!
