When two wrens take a fancy to each other.
Spring is a busy time in the world of birds. It is a time to build nests, lay eggs and raise the young. It is an especially busy time for the male Carolina Wren who may build three or four stick and twig nests in shrubs or mail boxes or a dish pan garden of pansies like the one shown here, before his mate decides on the one that will be home to her family. Perhaps, in this case, she wants her hatchlings first view of the world they will live in to be filled with the color and beauty of flowers in full bloom.
