Well, it happend. A wren built her nest in a flower pot among the daffodils, which is setting up on a post (actually some stacked cinder blocks) right near where I let the dogs out the back door. I had closed up the barn and came back to find that my little terrier mix discovered the nest, pulled it out of the flower pot and one of the tiny birds was scurrying away and hid under a rose bush. Thank goodness it had just happened or the babies would have all be dead. Two of the babies were still huddled in the nest, which I put back into the flower pot. I picked up the third baby and placed it back in the nest and tried to put the nest back in order. The mother wren came back with a worm in her mouth and was understanably nervous and kept darting to and from the nest w/o ever going in that I could see anyway. Of course, her nest looks a little messed up but it's still in tact. I put a large section of hardware cloth arount the entire area to keep the dogs out now that all of them are aware of the nest. Like I mentioned in a post last evening, I have three that are definite bird killers I know that it's an urban myth that if you touch a baby bird or the nest, it will be abandoned but what do you think the chances are that she will continue feeding the babies? I think what made her nervous was the hardware cloth I put in the area. It doesn't obstruct her access at all, but it's foreign to her. Until this evening, I've never even seen her around but can sure hear her when she's out looking for worms.
