The sex ratio is 1: 1, so some males go without mates. Again, the females select the males on the basis of the quality of the territory – food and nest sites. House Wrens chose Kathy's "decorative" bird house to set up housekeeping on our back yard deck in May, If you want to just kick back and.

Summer: House Wren breeds statewide, although data for show lower densities in the southern Panhandle and in the Sandhills (Sauer et al ), presumably since there is less suitable habitat.

The Carolina Wren Mating Habits. Carolina wrens are monogamous birds. Though not much is known about their mating habits it is reported that most Carolina wrens are monogamous not just for one breeding season but actually pair for life, or at least for many years.

In particular, mating system theory must mesh with theoretical advances concerning the evolution of territoriality, parental behavior, and animal sociality.

By including the appropriate theoretical work from these other areas, an integrated theory of vertebrate mating systems can be by: Many male birds will chase away males of their species, but in the nesting season, male House Wrens become hell bent on not only chasing away, but in fact eradicating entire families of other birds.

Sneaking up to a bluebird, finch or swallow nest, the “evil” House Wren male pierces the eggs, and then proceeds to trash the nest site. So, I’m starting up a life list for the house.
