HOUSE WREN
Troglodytes aedon

This small brown-gray migratory bird with a pale belly is very vocal and not very shy. It nests from May to August in edges, thickets and thickets where it can find cavities, but it can also nest in all kinds of artificial cavities that it finds near homes, such as a boot, a tin can, a boiler, etc. It lays 6 to 8 eggs which are incubated by the female for 13 days. The chicks will make their first flight approximately 15 days after hatching.

The house wren mainly eats insects, but also snails. It forms mostly monogamous couples, but the male can sometimes have two partners at the same time. From the start of the breeding season, the male builds several nests in his territory which the female will inspect before making her choice. This bird is very competitive and can destroy eggs and chicks in other nests.
