My friend and fellow artist Melinda Byrd (of Byrdcall Studio) sent me these pictures recently after telling the story of how this black snake climbed the wall to get into her wren house. I won’t bore you with the gory details (although it was a fascinating story) but you can see the wonderful pictures of the snake seemingly curled up on the wall. If you look closely, it is actually hanging on one nail. Evidently it made its way back up to the birdhouse and is sleeping and digesting the baby wren it ate.
Such is life.
