Description

This house wren family nested in a nesting box that was hanging underneath my front porch. I was able to observe by watching through a small window that is directly across from the nest. The parents mainly seemed to be feeding their babies small insects. I even saw them “taking out the diapers” (poop sack). It is so nice to be able to observe birds this closely. House wrens are adorable and they are such good parents.

Happy House Wren Family

This house wren mom is feeding her chicks a tasty morsel. The nest box is located underneath my front porch, where I had a "bird's eye view" for observation.
