Here’s another set from Saturday. I often hear Wrens, they are noisy things for their size, but spotting them can be tricky, and spotting them with young is even harder.
This was the first one I saw, with food. So I kept my eyes and ears open for more.
When I first took this shot I assumed this was an adult Wren looking for food. But now, looking at its beak, I think it is a juvenile. The beak is a lighter yellow and the lighter shade goes further back to make the bright gape of the hungry mouths. I don’t know if the webs are from spiders or caterpillars. Probably spiders.
A juvenile calling for food.
And then 2 juveniles calling for food.
And now, between them we have a dutiful parent with food.
Which to feed? The one that shouts the loudest or the one that looks as though it needs feeding up?
This parent has some food with skinny legs…
what’s the best thing to do with a beak full of legs?
Push it into the nearest gaping mouth. It doesn’t surprise me that juvenile has its eyes closed.
Then with a jump and ….
a flap off goes the parent for more food.
