I was pretty excited a few weeks ago when I found tiny eggshells on my lawn. This meant that my newest birdhouse tenants just had their babies! The House Wrens were busy earlier making this beautiful nest out of the tiniest twigs- so cute. Plus they placed little leaves here and there as filler.
Yesterday I saw lots of activity with feeding. Back and forth they would go. Their favorite food was a green bug with green see through wings. They must be yummy baby bird food.
As I mowed the lawn I could see something hanging out of the birdhouse. So I stopped what I was doing and walked over to check it out. Mamma was not happy and began her frantic chatter as I walked right up to the house. There sitting half out of the entrance to the birdhouse was a baby, Wren. He/she looked at me but made no fuss. Just opening his/her beak looking for some food.
I decided I need a “count”, so stepping closer I peered in and there were two more babies. Aww! I could hear the scolding from the parents getting louder and more distressing so I quickly made my exit from the garden.
Do you feel like that baby bird? So hungry from a word from God, a good verse for the day, encouragement from someone? I sure do. I want to have a full belly every morning so I can be prepared to fill others as well.
