Alternate use for a bird feeder...

Recommended Posts

...according to wrens.

Backstory: I watched the wrens building this late-season nest in the feeder (we don't feed birds in the summer).   They  had previously successfully nested elsewhere, as evidenced by the begging young hanging around.  One day they disappeared.  I  didn't think too much about it until about 5 weeks later when I took the feeder down to clean it.

Wrens will use almost any semi-enclosed space that provides protection from the elements and doesn't get jostled too often while they're building.  They're notorious for nesting in potted plants, door wreaths, propane tank meter covers, and a wide variety of containers in carports and open garages.
