    I love wrens. One years they made their nest in my daughters motorcycle helmet that was hanging upside down on the handle bars. Thank goodness she had lost interest and didn't want to go riding.

    Very cute! I see they added a little bit of plastic for insulation on those chilly nights. [​IMG]
