A Bumpy Fledge

This morning brought a most pleasant surprise!  I was present to see the fledge of two Carolina Wrens from the seemingly infamous Williamsburg "Bird Bottle".  But the first flight had its surprises.  One bird dropped and bumped off the garage wall to the part of the yard to my west.  Good enough.  But youngster #2 flopped into the open garage and promptly disappeared into its dark recesses.  The parents watched warily for a time and disappeared.  Only after about a quarter hour was I able to locate the fledgling and induce it to move into the outside world.  And that happened, with a happy result.  Two more wrens are on the premises and the bird bottle is definitely redeemed!  You can't beat that!
