House Wrens as Prey
Name: William Curtis Status: student Age: 6 Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: 5/28/2003
I am doing my first research report in Kindergarten on House Wrens. I have found everything but what kind of animals like to eat house wrens. Do you know??
Raptors (birds that hunt other animals) like Cooper's hawks might rarely catch an adult wren.
Raccoons and cats will raid nests but house wren nests are well protected inside cavities. Snakes will sometimes get into a nest and eat eggs or nestlings.
