The House Wren has filled this Bluebird box full of twigs ~ looks like a dummy nest. The male sits on top and sings. Guess he’s hoping a female will decide to build a cup in there somewhere to lay eggs. 6-14-23

        Male wrens build dummy nests, so if the female is building it and the male is singing on top of it then it is most likely a real nest.
