Wrens in stereo
We have two wren houses in our spruce trees, one outside of our south-facing bedroom window, one outside of the west-facing window. Each morning for the last week or so, two mates have been building a nest in each house, brightly singing to each other all the while. I don't know which house the female will choose, if one at all, but we've been waking up to wrens in stereo each morning and it's been terrific. That's the kind of news I like to wake up to.
