My Inner-west Sydney  neighbours have successfully enabled a Blue Wren to get 
another brood out. That's two that I know of this summer.

The wrens may use all the neighbouring yards equally, but I still think that  
they like me the most.
They watch to see when I stop weeding and then they all pounce down onto a 
brand new clearing. The other day I had to turn a large bit of rubble over to 
get at couch grass roots and revealed a red back and 2 spherical egg sacks 
attached to the side of  half a house brick and what I took for a male red 
back: a very small pale version. The male blue wren was down taking away a 
largish black spider immediately. (all the red was covered by his beak.)
