A pair of HOUSE WRENS has fledged young in a nestbox in my parents' yard in Eugene this year. To my knowledge, we've never had a single House Wren in my 20 years of growing up at this house in Eugene, nor for as long as my parents can remember, nor have I ever seen any in the neighborhood. I don't think I've ever encountered this species nesting within the city of Eugene, either, although they are certainly present in the foothills and on the outskirts of town. Interesting that they showed up and nested this year.
