Nesting Habits of the House Wren

Bird House

When a male House Wren finds an appropriate space located in a tree or nest box, he will gather several hundred sticks to place into the opening and thus begin the nest building process!

The male House Wren will then go in search of a mate. After he mates with a female House Wren, the rest of the nest building process becomes the female's responsibility. She will cover the inside of the nest with grass, feathers, hair and other soft materials she finds appropriate for the nest.

The female House Wren usually lays somewhere between 3-10 white or light pink eggs marked with red or brown spots.

When the eggs hatch, the female House Wren becomes very busy bringing food to the little hatchlings. These baby House Wrens stay in the nest for about two weeks before venturing out on their own. is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories.
