Just before a gentle shower began in late morning, Lady Wren emerged from Swiss Chalet, following a brief stop-in. Don’t you wish she could tell us how many eggs she is tending now?
Later in the day, I saw Lady Wren gathering sticks. She certainly is determined to fortify the door of her nursery. We’ve all heard of a baby snatcher this year who walked right into a maternity ward disguised as a nurse, so you can’t really blame Lady Wren for taking precautions.
Throughout the day, we heard Lord Wren coming and going. His jacket may be a little darker than Lady Wren’s, but the easiest way to identify him is by the bass notes he warbles at the end of his song.
We may be seeing more domestic scenes like this one during the next little spell. Peek-a-boo! I see you!
Bounce the Hummer slaked his thirst at Cedar Hollow several times. I hate to say it, but he wears me out! He takes a sip, bounces six inches into the air, down for another sip . . . up and down like a ping pong ball! Maybe he is hyperactive, poor chap. Goodness knows I don’t put any red food colouring in his nectar.
