A few words for the Birds:
The common House Wren nest in natural cavities such as tree stumps, woodpecker holes, and in certain birdhouses. The males arrive first on the scene and returns to the same breeding territory year after year. They build "dummy nests" in all available cavities in their territory, filling them with coarse twigs, sticks, and grass. The females then come along and pick the nest they prefer. She'll create a soft lining of feathers, wool, hair, or catkins in her nest of choice.
Wrens begin breeding as early as mid-March in some regions, in early April in others. Nest houses should be mounted 5 to 10 feet high near trees or tall shrubs.
The Black-capped Chickadee is found from coast to coast in the northern half of the United States. Although they prefer a mixed (deciduous/coniferous) woods they can also be found in parks, suburban areas and are regulars at our front yard birdfeeder. This cheery little bird is an absolute delight and has also been known to nest in a wren style birdhouse.
Chickadees are known for their high tolerance to cold tempertures - not uncommon in Minnesota.
