Second, we compare the nesting activity of bluebirds with that of other cavity nesting species at the study site including a nest box population of house wrens

hirundinis as the number of House Wren
nestlings increased in an Ohio population.
The incubation period was 15-16 d for the House Wren
eggs and 16-17 d for the Tree Swallow eggs; host clutch completion date was used to define the start of incubation for the House Wren
eggs since no other adults were observed attending the nest.
(1999) classified as significant responders to spring temperature increases in Wisconsin, median arrivals of Whip-poor-will, House Wren
, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and Red-winged Blackbird in east-central Illinois averaged 7.5 days earlier in the more recent time span; Brown-headed Cowbird arrivals were identical for both study periods.
The 77% predation rate on House Wren
nests in boxes at Eagle Creek Park was the highest yet reported for this species.

I used playbacks of House Wren
songs recorded in Monteverde to draw all male and most female wrens close enough to read band combinations.

The 2016 study focused on song birds such as Eastern Bluebirds, House Wrens
, Carolina Wrens, Carolina Chickadees and Tufted Titmice.
The records have helped expand knowledge of bluebirds, tree swallows, house wrens
and other species that make their homes in trees and nest boxes.
His service project, completed for Silver Falls State Park, involved creating birdhouses and nesting boxes for mountain chickadees and house wrens
. The project required more than 153 hours and 29 helpers.
The birds I observe frequently include American robins, house sparrows, house finches, tree swallows, American goldfinches, mourning doves, and house wrens
and chickadees use the bird houses set back in the pines.

take over the boxes, move them farther away from trees and shrubs.
