The tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle calls of the male have been starting the morning early, piercingly loud out the bedroom windows. His calls continue throughout the day. (The link takes you to Cornell Ornithology Lab's All About Birds page for Carolina Wren calls).
The male and female were taking turns flying up with nest materials (the pine straw on the side beds looked to be a favorite choice). It doesn't take long for a pair to build a nest - 4-5 days after some practice. I just spotted the male as I was typing and took a quick shot.

Hopefully, these wrens will be finished nesting by the time the scheduled replacement roof sheeting takes place.
