My Patience is Ever Rewarded

It seems that a pair of Carolina Wrens, thwarted in their efforts to build a nest in our garage, settled this week on using my five year old Williamsburg "Bird Bottle".  The bottle has acquired a collection of light plant materials and I observed wrens flying back and forth to the bottle location.  As you can imagine, I am delighted.  I have struggled with this nesting location for its entire history and only once has a fledge come out of it.  Whether they stay with this nest site or not remains to be seen.  It is noteworthy that the season has been colder than normal and perhaps that played into the birds' decision.  For now, my patience has been rewarded, as it was before.  Let's see what happens!
