I came home this evening from running some errands and there were two house wrens taking up residence on the back of this stuffed dog toy.

I spooked one but this little one stayed long enough for me to take its picture.

I put the stuffed toy there years ago to prevent the Robbins from building their nest on top of my porch light.

The white stripe above the eye on your new neighbor indicates that he/she is a Carolina Wren, rather than a House wren.

I hope that they are able to successfully nest. Our wren nests provide hours and days of entertainment.

Thanks for the clarification.

They overwintered this year, which I normally don't see.

And totally agree they are fun to watch and listen to.
