My neighbor had a Carolina wren's nest on the bottom curve of a wreath  
hanging from her front door.  There were eggs laid in it.  Then a  robin made a 
nest on the top curve of the same wreath.  Apparently, the  Carolina wren 
has abandoned the nest.  Now the robin is nesting  there.
Would the robin have scared off the Carolina Wren?  I know that  Carolinas 
sometimes make several nests and then choose one to occupy, but my  neighbor 
wondered if the Robin nest was the reason for the Carolina wren to  abandon 
her nest.  It would seem rather close for two different species to  nest on 
one wreath.
Any thoughts?
