Baby Announcement for Frick and FrackPosted: May 15, 2016
Frick and Frack’s three eggs have hatched. Meet the newest Carolina Wrens, Frank, Frankie and Freeda.
Mom and Dad have been busy keeping them fed. It is a multi-step process getting to the nest and making sure no predators are watching.
The meals have been small moths, little worms and various bugs.
I missed the shot, but the parent was pulling out a fecal sac. The nest is kept very clean.
When I finally got the shots I wanted for the post, I noticed that evening the adult Wrens were not tending the nest. I grabbed a flashlight to see inside and found the nest empty. It was the day the baby Carolina Wrens were ready to go out into the world. I wish them well!
