I’m attaching photos of baby wrens found in our little Smokey Joe barbecue.

My husband discovered “weeds” in our barbecue the day before Easter, which turned out to be a cleverly hidden bird nest with 5 naked little babies.

They appear to be doing well in these pictures at one week.

Good thing your husband spotted them BEFORE he cranked up the barbecue! /Gary
