Baby Carolina Wrens – 4 days later
This nest in in a potted sage plant on a shelf on our first floor apartment patio. I count four beaks in this photo, but there were six eggs originally and no evidence of death or any unhatched eggs, so we believe there are six young in there just piled on top of each other (as they do). This photo was taken with my cell phone on 5/19/15. Babies are awake but still very quiet. The one looking at me in the picture had his mouth open until he realized I wasn’t going to give him any food. Mama and Papa are excellent hunters and are frequently seen returning to the nest with large bugs for their babies.
