Come On A My House
Come On A My House by Rosemary Clooney. I can't identify who sang the last song on my ipod so it is a mystery to me why this song from my childhood popped into my head when I saw one of the wren houses stuffed with nesting material. The male wren's courtship routine is to entice a female with his selection of nesting materials. Thusly, the dandelion is hanging out of the house, not tucked neatly inside. I sure hope he is successful! Last year we had a house in a nearby bush and the neighborhood feral cat knocked it out and all 5 baby wrens died. We had already observed the cat skulking about under the bush in recent weeks so we moved the bird house to this post and added a second house to the other end of the patio.
