The wren was attempting to build his nest in a metal, electrical outlet cover attached to the side of the shed. You may recall another wren attempting to do the same in the March 24 edition of the Campus Update. In that instance, we were not able to cut power off to the outlet so we removed the nest material and bird-proofed the outlet cover. In this case, shutting off the power was a simpler matter, so we did so with the intention of allowing the wrens to continue to use the outlet cover as a nest box. (Kevin Mack / PAWS)
