First day out for the young wrens. They came out this morning from a Lomandra bush (the perfect cover for a wrens nest). We've been watching the parents over the last few weeks on their endless quest for food to give to their 3 chicks. The parents are now very skinny - a constant juggling act to keep the chicks fed and enough for themselves. It's getting harder to find wrens in cities and suburbs due to cats and dogs but more importantly the disconnect from large bushland areas.

If any of these chicks are male they may one day end up with a shiny blue coat like their dad.
