    Hey all i suck at updates right haha
    Ok soooo we ended up clearing the sticks and leaving the blues original nest. They added a few more grasses to the Taj Mahal and laid 4 eggs!! Anxious for hatching

    I Never had wrens previously which is why we did not have a wren guard. I did find eggs on the ground and there were sticks/dummy nest so – it was definitely wrens . I don’t mount anything on wooden poles – metal pole with a baffle. All evidence points to wren… i would put a guard up if the blues do lay again. They are hanging out and i think papa blue had some additional nesting material today soo fingers crossed…

    We had four eggs and happy happy blues and family…. Tonight we are very upset – wren attack…
    Eggs are gone… mama and papa blue are still hanging out, i just tosseds sticks off the top of their nest… and now i am trying to figure out what to do??!!!
    There is an empty box out there i saw them checking out and it seemed weird how they were acting so i checked their nest to find this news..

    :( Do i take the blues nest out , will they try to re use it? Do i leave it and try a wren guard… I actually have never had this issue before :(. HELP

    SO I’ve been slacking but quick update: We have 5 babies! :)
    and yes I know that TRES are usually very dive bombing – hard to spook but I’ve never had the box totally open and her just sitting there looking at me like “close my wall please.” lol

    Hey Judy,
    I would have to look at my book. Its possible, dont think I Have seen one, though some are orange-ish by the looks of it and could be mistaken for orioles if you were not experienced as i learned the first year that I had to identify TRES and Barn swallows and so on, I haven’t been at this as long as some in the forum. I will consult my book!
