Was surprised to find these birds nested on top of a robin’s nest–not so much because of this, but because this was in early January and it was freezing cold! Temperature was in the teens, and I have never seen any birds nest around here other than in the spring. What are they? From my research, looking in my books, I think they might be winter wrens? These were ALMOST ready to fly…the mother flew off when I came out (this was right on our porch), and the babies hopped out of the nest to the very edge, but went no further. Next morning they were gone!
