Shocked our male Wren last week - bitterly cold and he was using a nest above our garage door that he rebuilds every year to try to attract a female. Watched him go back in later which was good. I hope it is the male though and not some Wag taking advantage him.

Poll: Who is to blame for the current situation?

There was a documentary on recently were they found about 40 Wrens in one nest box all huddled together to keep warm.

Interesting. Not so daft after all then for the male to build loads of nests. Never underestimate nature !

How do they decide where to go? Like one of them says "you can all crash out at my place tonight" and the others follow?

Interesting way of keeping warm they have to. Found this on net.
A winter flock of Long-tailed Tits occupies a large but defined territory, which it will defend against other flocks. This flocking behaviour has an important survival function; birds make it through the cold winter nights by roosting huddled together along a branch, since such tiny birds could easily die of exposure if roosting alone. It’s been shown that the position in the roosting line is determined by hierarchy, with senior birds in the middle and subordinates at the ends, and that the birds on the ends are less likely to survive a cold winter night.

Yes I feed my birds in the garden but to fully answer the question of the opening post the birds in my garden also feed me.
