House wren – 7/6/21
Observer: Paul Lauenstein
Observation Date: 7-6-21
Observation Time: 12:50 p.m.
Observation Location: 4 Gavins Pond Rd.
Common Name: House Wren
Scientific Name: Troglodytes aedon
Comments: House wrens often fill bluebird nesting boxes chock full of twigs, presumably to prevent other birds from nesting in their territory. This year a pair of house wrens raised their chicks in a bird house we placed on the back deck. We watched the parents constantly bringing insects to their chicks.
