House Wren house

For two weeks I watched a pair of House Wrens frantically flying in and out of a hole in this dead tree along the bog. Every day I would visit, just waiting for this shot. I wasn’t sure if wrens returned to the same nest year after year but I looked forward to this scene for many years to come. Unfortunately, by the following Spring, this old dead tree had succumbed to nature and fallen into the bog. I’m certainly glad I was able to witness this little episode in the life of a wren family and pursued the opportunity with the patience and persistence I did.
