For the last few days, my Grand Isle CAROLINA WRENS have
been incubating five eggs in their third nest of the year.
The first nest was beside the front door of my house.
The second nest was over a side door.
This third nest was rebuilt at the first location on July 1 & 2.
At this rate, with such a quick renesting -- (only two
fledglings to feed) -- four broods per year might be possible!?
In 2009, the last brood fledged on September 9th.
