Every year we have Wrens nest in our garden.   The male builds several nests from which the female chooses the one she will lay her eggs in.   Once the nest is complete, the female will line the nest usually with white feathers and other soft material.  We took pictures of the female bringing in the lining materials but after several weeks, the eggs hatched and both male and female were bringing in food such as spiders and grubs for about 2 weeks.   The bird was so approachable we did not need a hide but just photographed them with a large lens whilst sitting on a garden chair about 15 feet away.
