Caroline Wren Babies in the Mailbox - Critter 75

Saturday, June 15, 2024
Surprisingly, we saw the bird made a nest in our mailbox. We have been watching the progress from eggs to these sweet babies for the last few weeks.


Fig - The babies' bird in the mailbox

The bird's mom won’t stay still for a good picture. We personally think it's a very heartwarming image.

After searching through Google, it is highly probably that the bird's species are Carolina wrens. It is because the birds are notorious for making nests in inconvenient places such as above doors or mailboxes.

Caroline wren nests are built from a combination of:
- leaves
- moss
- twigs
- and other debris.

The inside of the nest is then lined with soft materials, some of them are feathers and fur.

Have you enjoyed with this kind of experience?

  3. Sweet. I dunno if we have wrens around here. I have a robin's nest next to the garage and that can be risky getting to the car, sometimes.

  8. How sweet and very special. We usual have baby chickadees every year in our chickadee box. We never know what will show up in the woodpecker box, but it takes a lot of patience to figure out.

  10. I know you all have enjoyed watching these little wrens. We do have wrens around here and they are notorious for building their nest in the corners of house porches. They truly can make a mess....but it is so fun to watch the babies hatch and grow.

  16. Reminded me of the sunbird building its nest in our balcony! Once the fledgling flew away, they abandoned the nest. The nest had a specific purpose! To procreate!
