When we didn’t hear the young house wrens begging for food on Aug. 4, we hoped they had fledged. However, we found 4 dead fledglings when we opened the box. We had seen very few visits by adult wrens in the preceding days, and they may have abandoned the nest.

    Oh no! They look like they were close to fledging. Any idea what happened to them?
