In 2012 had Bewick's Wrens nesting on the back patio ... presumably the nest is at the bottom of the rolled mat tube ... their first "nesting" was in May, with four little ones fledging on May 12 ... soon the adults went back to re-lining the nest and the second brood of two fledged on June 25 ... we were lucky enough to witness both fledgings.
