Hey, Happy Sunday
We have lots of birdhouses around our yard, (handmade by Ron)
We just placed the one in this video up in the back yard along with a new feeder and bird bath for the complete bird experience!
I was amazed while watching this little Wren take to the house within 10 minutes and start filling it with nesting materials.
The bird in this video is a House Wren and doing some research I learned that they are complex and determined little guys!
The male usually has three prominent perches from which he defends his territory of 1/2 - 3/4 acres! Wow - he has three residences! The male gets things ready for his mate. He places sticks and twigs one at a time in each of his 3 homes. However - he could even have twelve homes! What a catch!
He goes about making nests and when he finds a mate he brings her around to each site to show her, she then selects the one she likes best. Once selected, she puts the finishing touches on it and prepares it for their little family.
How sweet is that? So while watching this little guy I could see how determined he is to get this place built and ready for his mate. He picks up sticks that are way too long and he sits there on the perch patiently maneuvering the twig so he can place it inside the house. He has such determination. He dropped several twigs but he didn't let that stop him as he continued to build the nest. He worked on it all day, and for several days later. The video below shows him placing just one twig!
So how determined are you to reach your goals?
