House Wren

Now that I'm working with birds for my "eight to five", well, my work day isn't exactly 8-5 anymore.  This morning I was up at 2:30 am, out the door at 3:20, and headed to the office to be on the road at 4:00  for a northern bobwhite survey in Coshocton County.  I didn't hear any bobwhites, but I was done with survey early enough to be back at home by 10:00 am.  Not bad for a days work, but, it started really early.

That gave me plenty of time to catch up on sleep and take a few photographs of our nesting house wrens this afternoon.  This is the third summer we've had a pair in a wren house since we've moved here almost two years ago.  They're a great bird to photograph- constantly active, they don't move very far, and they're always doing interesting things.



  1. Good luck on the new job! The House Wren is so LOUD,but I love hearing it sing. First bird I hear every day when I step outside. I have one that has been stuffing all the nesting sites with sticks and I don't think it has an actual nest in any of them.
