Exactly 4 months ago today I posted a picture of a birdhouse I had just made. The sides are hinged and open to reveal clear plastic walls inside the birdhouse – a “peek-a-boo” birdhouse.
The birdhouse sat on the table next to the couch for a long time, because Keeto liked to perch on it while we were all sitting in the gameroom. But I finally hung it up outside about 6 weeks ago.
Well, I couldn’t help myself, so I finally peeked inside and saw a nest and an egg! My friend Doray said it could be a bewick wren, when I described the momma bird to her that has been keeping watch in the birdhouse and nearby. I looked it up online and sure enough, i think it is a bewick wren. Just one egg, though. But, I’m so excited to see a birdie in residence.
I was also happy to see mom come back to the birdhouse afterwards. I’ll leave them in peace now and resist the urge to take another look.
