matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Ren's wren)
I was coming home from a walk the other night, when I got to the foot of our back porch to find a small flock of wrens hopping around on the railings, the bench on the porch, and the birdhouse my dad had hung up. They saw me coming and proceeded to start scolding at me and hopping around angrily, as if I were intruding on *their* territory. I calmly said them, "Hey, I'm just trying to get in the door of my house. I live here, too!" They kept scolding at me, but after a little while they moved away and let me go into the house.

The same thing happened to my dad last night when he came home from watering plants at work. Then at dinner, we heard a wren scolding very, very close to the house. My dad and I got up from the dinner table to see what was going on: a wren was sitting backward on the sill of an open window, her tail up against the window screen, scolding at something in the yard.
