They Flew the Coop

The House Wrens have completed their work for the year.  After three days of hearing nothing from the bluebird box (i.e. the box the bluebirds ignored this year!) I popped open the access door and took a good look inside.  The nest, which had in it noisy hatchlings only a few days ago, is empty.  Only a few small feathers attest to the work done there.  And as is the case with the House Wrens here, there is no sign of the birds.  I'm sure they're out there probing for insects in one big, happy family group.  Only the goldfinches remain in the nesting hunt.  It should be interesting to see what comes of that.
