Ok...back to my story. I opened the garage door and out she flew. That night Mr. M was puttering around in the garage and found what looked like a little bed area on a shelve, in a pair of old swim trunks. An hour later, around dusk, we noticed a little tail sticking out of the bed area. We got a flashlight and to our delight, a little wren was all tucked in for the night and did not seem to mind our prying eyes. So now every night I leave the door open just an inch or so so she can get in. Once I know she is in her bed, I close the door. In the morning she sings for me to let her out...is that cute or what! If you have never heard a Wren sing, it is like a little piece of heaven. I love knowing a sweet Carolina Wren is warm and cozy in my garage at night..and protected from predators. I Googled ( yes..I Google alot!) and found others who have experienced the same thing. Apparently Wrens do not handle extreme cold very well, so I am happy to help. I just found a recipe for Wren suet and I think I will give it a go. Not many bugs around in the winter.Ok...back to tree trimming..until next time, be kind and stay creative.

Look Who I Found In My Garage!
Hello friends, just a quick post while I take a little coffee break from my house decorating marathon, which I will be unveiling shortly. The other morning I was sitting at my computer, reading all your wonderful blog posts, when I heard this chirping noise that sounded quite close. After listening very carefully, I realized the sound was coming from the garage. I opened my Laundry room door, which leads to my garage and low and behold, there was the cutest little Carolina Wren trying to get out and chirping like a mad bird.
