Open Wide! Baby wrens in Horseshoe Bay make a bright summer picture. Have one of your own? Share it with The Highlander.

A ceramic bird feeder takes on a double meaning after a pair of Horseshoe Bay wrens claim it as the perfect nook for their clutch of eggs.

Texas is a nesting host to more wren species than any other state, nine of the 10 in North American. Once a nest is complete and accepted as home sweet home, incubation of eggs takes around two weeks before hungry mouths demand bugs and spiders for another fortnight before fledglings fly away.
