New Neighbor

I noticed last Tuesday morning that we had a House wren in our yard, which is odd because where we live, we don’t have a wren’s usual habitat which is forest and bush.

Instead, we have open prairie and a few spruce trees. There are woods are across the road from our house, where I know that there are many House wrens, but there has never been a House wren in our yard until now. The wren is a male, who has taken an interest in the log bird house my father built last year. The wren has been filling the house with little twigs. My mother and I enjoy watching him going in and out of the box. Now each morning I wake up to the beautiful song of the House wren.

This is the bird box on our deck where the wren is building a nest,
