Busy House Wrens

This cement birdhouse has been hanging in the GNG for almost 10 years with no takers.  Well, this year the fortress has tenants.  A pair of House Wrens is now busy at work filling the house with sticks to cradle their future family.  It just goes to show that when it comes to experiencing wildlife, sometimes practicing patience is key.
