House wrens 5.16

Introducing the Smith-Gilbert Gardens house wrens. These youngsters are less than a week old and look at those pin feathers already. It’s hard to tell where one nestling ends and where another begins. You can clearly see 3 yellow beaks, but there should be 7 of them. The nestlings will stay put for about 2 or 2 1/2 weeks before they fledge. Parents will feed them a variety of insects and spiders, including beetles, caterpillars, earwigs and daddy longlegs as well as flies, leafhoppers and springtails.
