Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!

I had other plans today but was tired and decided to do some backyard birding instead. I could hear the wrens chatter so I pulled up a chair and positioned myself for a good look at the birdhouses on the garden shed.


Sharing my tree with #TreeSquare

It wasn’t long before I saw the mama return to the rooftop with a large bug.

I watched her drop to the birdhouse below,

and feed it to her youngsters.

“More, more,” was the cry and she obliged, returning again and again.

Bugs! It’s what’s for lunch at the Wren’s house! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. We only have one box on one oak tree, and the blue tits use it every Spring. Now I want to add more, to cater for other birds.
    Lovely photos, Susanne.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Thanks so much Pete. I have never seen so much activity in the bird boxes as I have this year with the wrens! It’s so fun to watch! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I was thrilled! I guess it was good I didn’t have the energy to do much else except sit in the backyard and watch the birds! ๐Ÿ˜„

  2. I saw this post and chuckled as “bugs” caught my eye, Susanne! Great shots of mama bird feeding her babies! This Sunday Stills’ theme is bugs! You’re all set, LOL!

  3. They are so cute! Youโ€™re so lucky to have them nesting in your birdhouses!

  4. this is so amazing. How fabulous just to be able to sit and watch. Loving this Tree Square and additional birding photographs. Such a treat – wish I was sitting there with you!

  6. Susanne, what a great set-up for photography. Did you also supply the bugs? I’d be surprised if they don’t sell them in pet stores. Your bugs look nice and fresh, probably in the cold-foods section, or maybe like lobster, they keep them alive until you buy them and take them home. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ha! ๐Ÿ˜ Those are juicy looking bugs aren’t they? I was so lucky to catch the wren not only hunting but returning with that creepy crawler in his mouth! I guess it paid off setting up shop in the backyard for a while! ๐Ÿ˜Š
