Hummies And Wrens, Oh My!

To say that Sundae has enjoyed the hummingbird feeder we placed directly in front of her window seat would definitely be an understatement. She’s my little spotter, “chattering” whenever a hummie approaches.

I mentioned last week that wrens had built a nest in this little used-to-be decorative birdhouse on our deck.

Yesterday, I heard Sundae chattering and saw that she was very intent on something just outside the living room window.

I watched and waited with her, and soon, we could see two of the three baby birds, ready to fly out of the birdhouse.

I wasn’t quick enough with the camera to catch them leaving, but soon, all three, as well as Mama Wren, were flitting around our deck.

 And Sundae was ready…she says: “This is WAY better than tv!”.

You’re so right, Sundae. What fun to watch all the birdies.

  1. Bird TV (and squirrel TV) are popular here too!!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. I agree with Sundae that this is much more fun than TV. There are some tiny birds flitting around in the back yard, larger than a “hummie” and smaller than a sparrow. hmmm…maybe they are wrens.

  3. Mom had hummers right outside her kitchen window in NJ and those who came before us loved them. No matter what they don’t they can’t attract them here. Mom thinks that the beach is too windy for them.

  4. Hummies, wrens and Sundae!!! Couldn’t ask for more for a delightful blog post! Thanks…..

  5. One of our cats chatters, too! You just know something/someone is out there when you hear that chatter.

  6. Love the update on the Wrens.. had no idea they were ready to launch! I thought they were just setting up house!! So fun for Sundae, I’m not sure I would want to move from that spot either.. great view and I would have loved watching the Wren Family!

  7. I just read somewhere that wrens had the shortest “shelf life” (ready to fledge) of any bird so I am so glad you caught them on camera due to your alert camera crew (Sundae). The pictures are so sweet! I love that chatter that cats make when they see birds. I know Sundae and you and JR’s life has been made more full by the addition of the bird movies!

  8. Oh, Sundae has her own ‘bird-o-vision!’ Lucky girl!

  9. oh, how awesome! and i agree with sundae!

  10. I think maybe you need to put out more bird houses!

  11. What a sweet story dear Dianna! ❤️

  12. I took my hummingbird feeders down because I was having such a problem with bees. Maybe it’s time to investigate a better feeder…..Love the baby wren shot, Dianna.

  13. She’s on alert ….. there won’t be much out there her eye & your camera won’t see !

    Sundae is setting up your photo opportunity for you, what more can you asked. lol Love the pictures!

  15. How sweet. Way to go Sundae.

  16. Love it! We love to watch the birds of each season from our picture window in the kitchen. Of course, we encourage their presence by feeding them.

  17. How wonderful to be able to watch them all up close! Sundae you are so lucky! Wonderful pictures as always!

  18. What a magical place for Sundae to live!

  19. That is so cute. Sundae is a good “watch-cat” for sure and how neat to have the wrens nesting so close by.

  20. She’s got it good – better than cable tv or pay-per-mew! MJ

  21. So good you have a spotter to alert you to the goings on outdoors so you don’t miss a thing!
