Entertainment - A Family Any Bird Could Love

From Ananova, my source for silly, funny, and just plain "Awwww!"ful tales comes the story of a lucky wren who built her nest in a wheel well.

Doesn't sound so lucky to you? The owner of the car is arranging alternative transport to get to work until the eggs hatch and the fledglings are safely out of the nest.
She said: "It has been a bit of a pain having them there - I've managed to arrange lifts to and from work so far this week, but apparently it'll be another 15 to 20 days before the fledglings leave the nest."

But she added that the young family had proved popular with her two daughters Bethany, 8, and Rebekah, 5.
Most important, the children are learning to respect life, no matter what its form. They'll get to see the baby birds learn to fly, and respect their mother more for putting their happiness and the birds' well-being ahead of her own convenience.
