Spring On My Front Door

In the spring of 2007, a house wren built a nest in my door wreath. Despite our daily goings and comings, she laid three eggs, hatched them and all the baby birdies eventually flew. It was quite exciting. Clicking on the pictures makes them larger.

Here's a picture of her perfect little castle.

 Look carefully among the straw, and you'll see her head sticking out. It's almost in the center of the picture.

 Here are two birdies with their beaks open, waiting for a worm.
