Illustration Friday "Caged"

This week's IF word is "caged". This formerly caged bird is looking for its freedom.
Speaking of birds, the house wrens nesting in our backyard birdhouse are raising their second brood of the season. From early morning to evening, the parents fly in and out bringing insects to their babies. One can tell when a parent approaches the nest, as there is a cacophony of chatter from what sounds like a lot of little mouths. I hope we'll see them fledge soon and maybe get an idea of how many babies were in there. As I write this, dusk is falling and I can still hear the sounds of feeding going on.
