  1. Wonderful photo! ‘Jenny Wrens’ my grandmother called them, so small and cute, lovely song, and able to keep her mailman at bay when one of them nested in the mailbox! Small but powerful with the scoldings. Oh, and the mailman thought it was cute too, so Jenny Wren had an undisturbed mailbox for her family for the rest of the season. Thank you for sharing the photo, it brought back nice memories. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thanks Haunani :-). I love your story! Thank you so much for sharing your grandmother’s little mailbox wren. I found a couple of literary references to Jenny Wren. “Sing a Song of Sixpence”, with the four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie, has a Jenny Wren in one of the alternate endings who puts the queen’s nose back on. And Jenny Wren is a character in Charles Dickens’ “Our Mutual Friend”. I was curious.
