Mom not Feeding Baby Wrens Today

12 years ago

I have an active nest outside of my bedroom window and as of yesterday, mom was feeding the babies non-stop through out the day, but today, I haven't seen her feed them once, in fact, there is no site of her around whatsoever.

I am really concerned about her babies, not sure how many there are, I know there are at least 2. They've been chirping all morning and it sounds like the chirping is getting lower and lower. Is there anything I can do? Will they starve to death? Should I just let nature take it's course? I am quite concerned about them.

I thought that both male and female Wrens took turns feeding their young but I haven't seen the male around since the very beginning.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
