    Ohhhh…. I LOVE this one. πŸ™‚

  6. Look at that cutie! Such a great shot! How far away were you?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Sorry about the delay in my response, Sarah – your comment was stuck in spam – ?? I don’t know why! To answer, the bird box is about 10′ off the deck. So I just sat and took pics. πŸ™‚

      • This happened to me a lot a couple weeks ago – I think I was working from my phone and that got pulled to spam for a bunch of people.

        And that’s so close – my birds all fly away. Of course, it may be the dog who follows me constantly that they’re afraid of.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Wren (our dog’s name, coincidentally) is leashed on the deck (she’s a digger and a rover, so not to be trusted unsupervised). At first, she was interested, and the birds wary, but soon got used to each other. They only flew off if we got within 5 feet. Pretty tame as birds go. But I guess that is why they call the House Wrens. πŸ™‚

    A great photo, Eliza!

  8. Rebecca says:

    Oh, so gorgeous, Eliza. Who built the little birdhouse?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Rebecca. I think the house was purchased at a craft store. It was a Christmas gift many years ago from my sister who had hand-painted it. This is the first time its been used other than by wasps. πŸ™‚

  9. Robin says:

    Love this. ❀ ❀ ❀ Beautiful birdhouse, too. πŸ™‚

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Robin. My sister did a great job painting it. Fun fact: I learned that wrens will sometimes put spider eggs in their nests so that when they hatch, they will eat parasites in the nest. Pretty clever little birds!

  10. Ohhhhh, such sweetness.

  11. Karen says:

    Wonderful shot Eliza, hoping you are having a great day or night.

  12. Awwww! We love watching a red headed cardinal with her huge baby screaming and oscillating its wings as she stuffs strawberry guava into its mouth – she’s flying away to the treetop more and more these days so ‘baby!’ learns to peck on its own. So cute πŸ˜‰ xo

  13. MK says:

    What a pretty bird, and she has such a pretty house.

  14. Maria F. says:

    Wordless for sure!

  15. ladygrace33 says:

    So cute and I absolutely love their little colorful house πŸ™‚

  16. Kathy Sturr says:

    Love the babes! So joyful and yet so sad when they leave the nest.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      It was fun while it lasted, they were so close to the deck, they were big entertainment. However, I must admit I wasn’t sad when they fledged, as they were SO noisy!
