Wrens Nesting

This was from last summer; I'm just now posting again. 
One day I noticed dirt on the porch right under the hanging basket and this is what I found. I told the little wrens this was a bad idea. I was going to put this plant in a larger pot. Too bad, she's staying. Okay. This picture was taken on June the 8th. 

June 15th we have a nest of eggs. 

June 29th, hatching out. That's something, isn't it?

July 5th, Momma, I'm hungry. 

July 10th, Okay, I see you. It was amazing they let me get this close for a picture. Of course, it was really crowded in there. The top was getting thin. 

Empty nest syndrome. Then one or two days later they were gone. I was going to get pictures of them leaving the nest, but they left while I was gone. I was gone only a couple of hours that morning. I was sick I didn't get pictures. I knew it was going to be soon because the day before the mother and father were on the railing chattering to the babies. It was fun watching them.
