A House Wren in My Bird Bottle

I have several of these handmade redware pottery bird bottles from Colonial Williamsburg hanging on my house. This one is on the back of my cottage so I can see and enjoy it from my balcony. It was fun watching the nest building earlier in the spring. Want one? Order here while they have free shipping. The two centuries old HISTORY behind these authentic bird bottles can be read here. Enjoy!

I got as close as I could with my iPhone in hand before Jenny Wren flew away. I promise not to bother her again while she hatches her babies. If you want to see an old blog post of mine with a photo of a bird nest I removed from one of these bottles on the front of my house, click here. I had to remove it when I had my cottage painted two years ago.
PS--I woke up earlier than ever this morning. Sigh.

I forgot to say; in the first two nests......four or five baby birds flew! This is the first nest that there wasn't one egg left. I think you probably had most babies fly! two just weren't fertilized

Gorgeous nests and birds! Aren't we lucky???

Give them the shelter and the habitat.....and they will come!! And nest! And stay close!!!!
