World Bird Wed.House Wren

It`s been a whole week again without a post.So much to write,however,first things first.Th bird I chose to post about today is the house wren,troglodytes aedon.I posted a few weeks ago about the wren when she was busy building a nest in that gourd,very elaborate if you recall.I was stunned this week to discover with all of that trouble,it was a fake nest.They actually built in this bluebird box which is nearby.The bluebirds never nested here,we have seen them,but they never stay.They used to nest at the neighbors,but they moved away so I don`t know if there is even a box there next door.
But,getting away from the story,the house wrens are raising babies in the bluebird box,& when I came inside after checking on things & refilled my birdbath,guess what was in the birdbath,a bluebird! These are rather fuzzy of him as I was snapping away through the window at him.
Go to the springman`s blog where he hosts world bird Wed. to see many amazing photos from around the world & join in ,it is alot of fun.The link is

Those Bluebirds look like they're enjoying their bath.
Our male Wrens here, tend to build more than one nest, and the female decides which one she'll use.
Fussy! lol-
