Who says birds don't have lips?

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Thos Quinn, Aug 8, 2005.

  1. This is a follow-up to my previous “A Successful Birdhouse” post ‘cause I was worried many of you were loosing sleep wondering how things were going. This is the first baby of this year’s second house wren brood to leave this nest nest. This youngster was holding on to the edge of the hole exercising its wings readying for the “big leap”. When I set my tripod up about 10 feet away, it froze allowing a “sweeter” aperture (and resulting longer exposure). The house is now empty (of birds) and I think I’ll clean it out to be ready for a fresh start come next spring. Curiously, the actual nest is way up in the upper right corner of the house, well above the hole. The poor male had to fill up the whole bottom of the house before actually building “the nest”.
