This year the wrens actually chose a bird house as a nest home. Go figure.
In other critter news, I surrendered to the squirrels and set up a feeding station specifically for them, in hopes they'd be too satiated to tinker with our cages set around tomatoes and strawberries.
I do wonder if I'm not simply reinforcing the idea that everything in our yard is set out just for their eating/playing pleasure, but so far, so good. The squirrels are happy with the easy gets, and the tomatoes and strawberries are getting a second chance to mature on the plants.
