Squirrels have been using our most frequently occupied birdhouse as a storage space for their goodies, but as we did some spring clean-up in the yard, we discovered a new family in one of the others:
I haven't gotten a photo of her body markings yet, but I think she's some sort of wren. She's very small and fast, and she's already hatched two babies who are about as big as my pinkie.
She didn't seem to mind me taking a couple of shots, but I stayed back and used the telephoto setting so I wouldn't freak her out. I'll see if I can get a snap of the babies the next time she goes for take-out.
What's showing up in your yard this spring?
