Even though house wrens are bluebirds' greatest enemy, I enjoy them too. Their scissory song and their annual use of their bird house, shaped like a giant acorn, right by our front window.

The snow was coming down almost horizontally pushed by a strong wind this afternoon. Despite the snow and chilly temperatures, it was really nice to see the first House Wren for this year in our yard.
We’re hoping a pair of wrens use nest boxes on both sides of our kitchen as they’ve done in recent years. Love the music going back and forth past us while we have our meals! Makes everything taste better….
