Glutton For Punishment

He's back. After raising one family and sending them on their way, Mr. Wren is now setting up house keeping once again. He has picked a smaller birdhouse this time (because the other one is still full of the old nest) and for the last two days has steadily been filling it with small twigs and bits of stuff. And singing at the top of his little lungs. So far, he hasn't been able to entice Mrs. Wren to come back and join him. Maybe she's not quite as eager to go through this again. But he keeps right on singing, and singing, and singing. How can she resist?

Since we're on the subject....Surprise, surprise. Red breasted woody decided to turn the tables on Big Red and was chasing HIM around the yard, until of course BR landed and faced him, then he scooted on outta here. I think he was pretty proud of himself though.

And.....Had to put up the other oriole feeder since all the moms and pops are bringing their kids around. There were seven of them here together this morning. Keep trying to get a picture but can't get close enough and taking one through the window won't work this time cause the feeders are too far away. Will have to think of something.

Along with that camera and lens, I also need a tripod and a remote clicker.

Actually there isn't that much action here. I just lie.
