Over the course of the day yesterday, the eggs in the pot in my greenhouse all hatched, and Mr. and Mrs. Wren are now the proud parents of five babies!
As she spent the past couple of weeks sitting on her nest, Mrs. Wren has become accustomed to having me around, while I make trips into the greenhouse during the day. I always say, "Hello, Mrs. Wren." to announce my presence. Her nest is WAY back inside the pot, beside a large bag of perlite. (Photographing the eggs, and now the babies, requires coordinated simultaneous use of both my camera AND a flashlight.)
The babies are so tiny, mostly naked with fuzzy down feathers on their heads and backs. They grow so fast ... it seems like a miracle. I hope to get out there multiple times per day to do the best I can to document the process.
