In four years of service, our SUV has proven it can climb like a goat, negotiate snow like a sled dog and carry furniture, mulch and groceries like a champ. Also in its four years of service, it has served three times as a nesting site for wrens. At one time, there was a nest in each rear wheel well.
We think the SUV may have sheltered one brood successfully, but don’t know what became of the other brood, if there was one. Over the weekend, we noticed a telltale piece of bermuda grass was trailing out from between the wheel well and the tire. The nest, as yet without eggs, is pictured below.
