One day a little wren stopped by to check out the babies. I must admit I was a bit freaked out at first, but then she started to feed them as if they were her own. She had a nest nearby, but her babies didn't survive after hatching. We called her Nanny.
The day they flew away from the garden it was total chaos for about 20 minutes and then they were gone. It happened so fast. It took me about a week to stop looking out the little window that faced the nest. I really missed them.
They came back this past April and build a nest in the exact same spot. I was so excited to witness the whole process again, but we had a late freeze and shortly afterwards she abandoned the nest. I took down the nest after a few weeks hoping they would come back and rebuild but so far nothing. There were three little eggs.
Here are a few of my images from last year.
