what kind of bird?

Recommended Posts

I have no idea what kind of bird it is, but I am intrigued by it. Didn't it too fly away when you got right up on to take the picture? Is it sitting on eggs? I'd have to guess that would be very unusual for Maryland.

Last May and June, a pair of Cardinals hatched two eggs right outside my kitchen window. I managed to have the camcorder rolling the moment the first fledgeling left the nest. A nervous and proud dad kept close watch in the background.

It absolutely looks like a house wren. It's odd that they didn't migrate. It's also odd that the nest isn't in a cavity.

No, not in a cavity but at least under cover of the back porch. It's well shielded from the usual north westerly winds.

Keeping the light on will also provide warmth.
