The Watering Can

The Watering Can.
I think I mentioned how the Carolina Wrens decided since Evelyn left the watering can unused for 3 days, that it would be a perfect spot for a nest. Well, the Wrens have hatched and they are pretty close to fledging. I sat on the porch yesterday and set up shooting some images of them coming in to feed the babies. You can see by the objects behind the can, it is just sitting on a dry sink with tools all around. The plastic watering can has worked great for the past month or so, and will work fine for the next week as well. I love having nature so close and allowing me to watch and learn. There are things in the field you can never learn from a book.

  1. I had one of these Wrens fly into my house back in January. We still had the wreath on the front door and I guess it was hiding in there. When I came home from work and opened the door to go in it was startled and flew in the house. It took a good hour to get it back outside haha.

    LOL! We had one get in the garage for 2 days or so. It ate well, thank goodness. Then we freed it!

  3. You are right. It’s nice to have nature around. And you seem to be in a good company. Best, Nataly
