Nest UN-building

I watched a tiny house wren demolish an existing nest in one of our bird houses yesterday. I hope it was an abandoned nest, but it's hard to say. Pool season has just begun and I'm still trying to get up to speed with the yard "soaps".

I noticed that most of what she meticulously picked out all afternoon was wool, mixed with a few feathers. As it seems that most of the birds here actually like our wool in their nests, I was a bit disappointed.

Today, all is quiet on the bird house front, so I snuck up and took a picture of the remains of the demolition and then peeked inside to see what she chose to line her new nest. It was wool.

I suppose it's no different than us moving into a new house. What is the first thing you (or at least I) do? Clean.

Silly birds ;-)
