WBW 30-Parenthood


SC State Bird the Carolina Wren
The wrens have 5 eggs in a flower pot on my deck--it must be a young mother she is very skittish, she flies off the nest every time I come on the deck...So Im trying not to bother her but I am hoping for some photos when they start feeding the hatchlings if they are successful at incubating them..Since she was already off the nest I grabbed my camera and got this shot of her eggs--I watched the couple build the nest before Memorial day and then one egg appeared then two, three, four and five then she started to sit --
5 Carolina Wren Eggs
IT was fun to see this busy MOM taking some time for herself--at the backyard SPA~
Female Eastern Bluebird

AND lets not forget the DADS they do their part too...This House Male Finch is taking his kid out for fast food!


Share your birding adventure with everyone at World Bird Wednesday!!


CLICK THIS PICTURE!



Carolina Wren Trivia: it takes about 12-15 days for the eggs to incubate..so hopefully Ill have some wren babies in a few days!!



PEACE

  12. Great pictures. What wonderful finds you come up with. Beats watching humans all the time. I know how hard it is to find nests.

  17. I've never been able to watch a nest so closely. These Cariboo birds are very secretive. I need to get my bird spa out too.

  18. Sondra, I am envious of your CAWR nest being so accessible. I have them but can't find their nest.
    All your photos are splendid!

  19. Oh Sondra! Fantastic post, your pictures are phenomenal. I don't see wrens around here so I am crazy for them. You just can't beat detail like this. Consider my fingers crossed for five healthy hatchlings!
