I've kept the doors open for 2 days due to warm weather. Now the weather has turned again, I closed the doors this evening. I heard a rustling in the back. Sounded like a bird to me. Probably a House Wren. They fly in and out of our garage all the time. If so, there is a crack left open in the window for them to fly out. If it wasn't a wren, I don't want to think about what it might be!!!

I haven't had a wren move in yet but have had hummingbirds and sparrows. The cats will do more plant damage trying to catch the poor birds so I catch them myself.

I've also found that at dusk when it is lighter outdoors, the bird will usually find its' way out an open door. Good luck with your 'rustler'.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

Recently, something was eating my ripe strawberries. Each day, the berries that were ready to pick were gone or dropped on the floor partially eaten. We had traps set for mice and chipmunks but didn't catch any. I finally found the culprit. It was a sparrow that would fly in the open vents at dusk, and spend the night. My strawberries were his breakfast. My husband plans to use hardware cloth to screen the vents for me.

The hardware cloth over the vents has solved my problem. Now the strawberries can ripen on the plants and we can pick them!
