Wrens Feeding

Since the baby wrens hatched,
the mother and father wrens have worked from dawn to dusk
feeding their little ones.
Sometimes a worm, a spider, a small grasshopper.
The wrens are so quickly in and out of the violets covering the nest,
 it's hard to tell just what morsels they have.

Today I noticed the baby wrens now have their wren-like feathers.
One of them emerged about two-thirds of the way
in an attempt to grab the food first.
I'm sure they will take their first flight soon--
probably in a couple of days.
Here's a short video of today's feeding:
