Building Time with Frick and Frack

My favorite duo are at it again.  The Carolina Wrens, Frick and Frack have decided to build a nest in a big pot on the back porch.

I was able to shoot these photos from a window as they worked hard all morning long.

Sadly, I am going to have to dash their dreams of a new home as it is right next to the back door and I know they will not be happy there.

I think this project may be their second nest of the year, as a juvenile was following them around.  The Wrens are smart and resourceful and I am sure they will find a better place for starting their next family.

    This is the time of year when boaters are pulling nesting material out of every corner of their boats, too. The smaller birds — mostly sparrows and starlings — love to build inside booms. Mallards prefer cockpit pockets, while the doves tuck in around radars and such. Any port in a storm, so to speak!

    Frick-n-Frack! Looking forward to tales of their (and your) adventures!

    Yeah! I’m glad that Frick-n-Frack are back. It’s interesting how they decided to try to build a nest so close to your house.

  4. Isn’t it so fascinating to watch them do this? I can’t tell you how long I stood watching a pair make their nest in my garden.
