[birdky] Re: wren attacking hummingbird replica

Thinking more about it.  I have had the wind chime out for two years now, and 
carolina wrens are regulars in our yard year round.  Plus I've seen wrens in 
the shrub beside the chime countless times, but I have never observed any of 
them show even a hint of agression toward it.  Makes me wonder how many times 
it may have occurred before now.   Curious.
