Great photos of wrens! Such cute little dudes . We had our first nesting pair of house wrens this spring. The male was a bossy little fella. Tried scolding me out of my own back yard more than once. He could not abide the blue jays coming to the peanut feeder. I thought the poor little guy was going to wear himself out chasing and scolding! In our city yard, we don't have bluebirds, so that isn't a concern for me.

Speaking of chasing....I was sitting on my screened porch near the hummingbird feeder a couple of evenings ago with a cocktail. A male hummer was at the feeder when a juvenile cooper's hawk flew through the yard screaming up a storm (begging, I assume). That darned little hummer, left the feeder and "chased" the hawk until it was over the house and gone. I doubt the hawk even knew he was being followed. The hummer then returned to the feeder and quietly resumed his bedtime snack. Hummingbirds are bold little guys!

That's quite the story about the hummingbird Katjh. They really do make claim to their territory, especially.......... at the feeders.

Very interesting havalotta--that is NOT how I saw it at all...not sure how you did that, but great job!

My version is more of a turban with only the eyes showing (I think...I've gotta go back and squint again.

Now, the real test is to see if that matches Jack's vision...I'd like to think my version matches his. (I did search for an old thread with the retouched photo, but I couldn't fine it...now I wonder if it is only my imagination.
