i have a Wren nest in my garden.
i have been watching intently and have 2 questions.
Does the male and female both feed the young?
Ive noticed the Wren taking something away. What is it taking away and is the other parent in the nest and passing it something?Thanks

Yes, it's gone! What you see being taken away are fecal sacs, waste produced by the chicks, to keep the nest more healthy!
Hi Nikki, not this year but the last two years we had a wren nest in the Virginia Creeper on the gable end wall. I never knew it was there and had not seen much of the wren in the garden, but I could hear the teet, teet, teet at the window and I would often see her sitting on the fence opposite, when looking out the window, obviously annoyed at me! When I went out to look I could see the nest high up amongst the trellis and creeper. A tiny nest made of mostly moss. In the back end when tidying up the creeper and rhones I had a wee look in the nest, without disturbance it, in case they used it again, and almost had a heart attack and fell off the ladder,when a mouse ran out and along the trellis!! A nice cozy hidey hole! Hope you see the babies soon.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
