A pair of wrens has decided to raise their family in the top drawer of our grill! The last photo shows the "entrance hole"!

It looks like we won't be grilling out for a while!

It was lovely to watch them develop Jacob. I had hoped to watch them fledge but it must have happened really early one morning & I missed it.
Very true Despina! Actually, it was a pretty good choice for a nest site - safe from the raccoons & squirrels though obviously it was a good thing we noticed the nest before we lit the grill! :)

Nature is unpredictable :D

The chicks are now 9 days old & beginning to develop the distinctive eye line. They will fledge in 3 to 5 days time.
