Bewick's wrens nesting in a hollow tree

In March a pair of Bewick’s wrens built a nest in this hollow tree and successfully raised a family of 6 chicks.  Today (26 May) we noticed that the same parents are back and building another nest.  We know it’s the same pair because the male has a distinctive mark above his left eye.

We’ll update this text as things develop.  We’re very excited to see the wrens come back a second time.  They’ve very diligent parents.  This link shows the first nest-building process:  https://texasbackyardwildlife.com/wrens-nesting-in-a-hollow-tree-in-austin-texas-2/
