It seemed like a place where their eggs might get stolen, but they did not seem to care, and neither did my wife– who saw it as a well-timed symbol of our 4 year wedding anniversary. Alicia said that the pair of Carolina wrens were starting their family, just as we did not long ago. I made a few jokes about how soon the birds would have a broken family (after squirrels raided their nest), but Alicia just brushed them off.
This morning I decided to show Alicia that I wasn’t 100% brute, so I took 30 minutes and had fun photographing the birds as they collected materials for their nest.
