House Wren Feeding and Fecal Sac Removal

A pair of House Wrens decided to nest outside my parent’s picture window, providing a near constant show. We witnessed several feedings and at least two baby mouths inside the box.

Then we saw one of the young stick its rear out the nest hole and deposit a fecal sac into its parent’s mouth for proper removal.

Gross and cool!!

Side note: The wrens are nesting about 5 feet away from an American Robin pair that is on their second brood in a nest by the front door.
