Well, for the past week, I thought I had a pair of Carolina Wrens setting up house in my BB box. They were coming in and out as if they were serious…
Then, this morning, I saw a male HOSP going in and out… I set a VanErt trap, and within 30 minutes had a large male HOSP in which to bait the repeating trap with. But he was so frantic in the BB box that he knocked most of the wren nest out of the bottom ventilation slot. So, I guess we’ll see if the wrens come back. I did see a male BB sitting on top of the box two days ago, even as the wrens were around. Don’t know who would have won that fight… Kind of a wet and drizzly day here today, and not many birds at my feeders this morning.
