This Momma Wren has been fussing at me for weeks.
Then I found the reason why:
She had a nest in my aloe vera plant.
I found it when I was watering my plants,
and was afraid that I might run her off.
She didn't give up!
I watched as she carried tiny bits and pieces of moss,
and found that she made a cave-like nest.
The babies hatched, and are now nearly ready to leave the nest.
Today was extremely hot, with a record setting temperature of 112*F.
While the momma wren was gone looking for food,
I took a look at her babies and grabbed this picture.
There were three of them nestled together.
I hope they survive the heat!
Watching these little wonders reminded me of a Bible verse:
"Look at the birds of the air,
for they neither sow nor reap
nor gather into barns;
yet your Heavenly Father feeds them.
ARE YOU NOT OF MORE VALUE THAN THEY?
