We have a male wren in our neighborhood.
He's desperately looking for a lady friend!
He's loud and persistent in his calls and can be heard
even inside our house with the windows closed!
For those of you who may not know, the male wren
will build 3-4 nests all on his own even before meeting
his lady! Then he will call and call for as long as it takes!
Once she shows up, he changes his calling to a romantic,
soft song and takes her around to all the nests he has made.
She gets to choose which ever nest she likes!
After she chooses, she starts tearing it apart
and then the two of them rebuild it together!
What a man, huh, to put up with all of that!?
Just after reading all of these facts a few years ago,
I got to witness it right in my own yard.
That obnoxious call that had been going on for days
suddenly turned into the sweetest little cooing!
I couldn't believe it was the same bird!
I took the photo this week when Mr. Wren must have
been checking out my hanging basket for bugs.
They don't eat seed!
And as I type this, he is still out there
calling his little lungs out! I hope for his sake that
a sweet little girl wren shows up soon!
I've linked up with Anni at I'd Rather B Birdin'.
