My wife and I have been watching a mother and father Carolina Wren build a nest in these baskets we had outside and forgot about. Eggs were laid. Eggs were hatched. Now the nest has 3 to 4 baby wrens in it. We love watching the mother and father go in and out feeding the babies.
But now a severe storm is heading this way with tornado warnings. The birds nested between these two baskets - one sitting on the next.
Should I protect them or let nature have its way? What would you do?
