What I listened to today...

My computer is in the downstairs den, and right outside is our covered patio. Hanging from the deck above the patio is a set of bamboo windchimes, with a pagoda birdhouse as a decoration above the actual bamboo chiming bits. Know the one? Anyway, last year a little wren, who didn't realize the birdhouse was merely decoration, built her nest in it! In spite of all the bamboo clattering, and our moving the chimes whenever it stormed and the wind blew too hard, she gallantly raised two babies in it who fledged one day while we happened to be sitting on the patio.

She returned this year, and all day long outside the window her babies have just been cheeping and chirping and peeping and squeaking their little heads off from inside that pagoda chime-house! Fun company. :-)

Here's a photo I took of one of her babies last year, just seconds before it left the nest for the first time...babywrenJust a little glimpse into my life. (Or into the life of a family of Wyoming wrens, anyway!)
