The wren and the trhee ton truck
This wren nests in a three ton dump truck each year. It changes which opening it uses, but it always returns.The truck is not used much in the summer, more for snow plowing than anything else.When it is moved it doesn't seem to bother the wren. It finds it were ever it is parked and resumes its activities.The Park staff checks the nest before using the truck and try to put the truck back where it was.Nature will persevere.
