Mi casa es su casa?

Had a bird in the house today.  A house wren built a nest near our front door, and laid a clutch of three eggs.  We noticed the next and the eggs earlier this year, and have been avoiding the front door to keep from disturbing momma and her babies.

This morning, a visitor rang the front doorbell.  When the door opened, one of the barely fledged wrens fluttered into the house and hid in the family room.  A careful hunt found him huddled in a corner.

The open garage door gave him a path of escape.  Cautiously, I herded him toward the doorway.  After several false starts, he finally understood and flew out the garage.  Whew, that was enough adventure for one day.
