Kentucky Color: An Answer to an age old question
When their natural nesting place, in Cameron's basketball goal, was taken down, naturalist feared he'd never see the Wren family again.

By Billy Joe Fudge
For years, cute little Wrens have been laying their eggs and raising their family inside the housing of the break away mechanism of my son, Cameron's basketball goal.
Each year, for weeks after the babies hatched I would watch them fly in with food for the chicks and fly out with chick manure to keep things tidy and healthy for their family.
After taking down the goal a couple of years ago I just sort of figured I would not be seeing them again but out of the blue, I began to see them flying out of one of our hanging ferns.
After a little investigation, I found this tiny nest with four eggs (linked photo) about the size of the end of my pinky finger.
The nest seems to have a little horse hair or part of an old tired, discarded toupee adding to the comfort factor of the accommodations.
Additionally, I'm hoping that these little eggs will finally answer the age old question, "do blue and brown match"?
