Frick and Frack: The Saga ContinuesPosted: April 4, 2016
A new year and and new nest. This year Frick and Frack are building on the porch again. They are trying out the chiminea. The Carolina Wrens picked a location that will be dry and is high enough that cats and raccoons may stay away, but the chiminea is right in the path of humans coming in and out of the garage.
Frick and Frack have spent days building the nest.
Each takes a turn adding the building materials. The Wrens are using pine needles, mosses and dried leaves.
It is hard to get a good photo, but look at the nice weaving of the pine needles. It is amazing that the birds instinctively know how to construct a nest.
Some of the materials were just too big to fit. It will be interesting to see if this site will become Frick and Frack’s actual nest this year.
