I was a witness and it was wonderful seeing first flight....
10

So anybody who has seen my pictures knows ive been following a "family" of wrens. to date ive only taken pictures of the "parents". The nest was made inside a pool float that hangs over my pool gate. Ive been listening to the babies and watching mom / dad continually getting food and snacks for the young ones. Today i saw the babies for the 1st time. There were 4 of them. The first picture shows them looking out for the 1st time out of the float. quickly thereafter they started flying out one at a time. One plopped out onto the ground before "lifting off" and i quickly snapped a photo. I consider myself lucky to have been a witness to this and while 2020 has been a disaster, this is a good memory i will have.

Question - what happens next? do they stay away from their nest? do they return?
