A little house wren building a home in one of our bird houses.
The House Wren, Troglodytes aedon
lives year round in much of California. House Wren is absent from
most of the desert and elevations above 8000 ft.. In the
rest of the United States it is a summer resident, preferring winter in
House wrens spend their days looking for small insects on your
plants. This Wren has a territory of about 2-4 acres. The birds
can produce two broods in one season with an incubation of 13-15 days
and leave the nest after 12-18 days. Weird to think that you get
new birds in less than a month. Can you imagine how overpopulated the
planet would be if you could produce humans that fast?

About every three minutes a bug is delivered to the nest.
