For several years, I’ve put up birdhouses in the hope of attracting Bluebirds. I must have placed them in the wrong places, because no Bluebird came, and only Chickadees and House Wrens have taken advantage of my birdhouses. Yesterday, I saw an energetic House Wren busy building its nest inside one of the birdhouses.

House Wren and another twig!

Air House Wren.

When will it stop bringing in more materials?

House Wrens are mostly plain brown, but they sing well and are one of the most common birds in North America and South America.
