I added a little something to the retired-guys 'to do' list this week. He's been helping me with my new-found-hobby and building and hanging bird houses around the property. We are keeping them close to the mouse-house so we can enjoy the activity they may bring.
Here's the latest one with a cathedral roof. We found the perfect old maple that would make a fine spot for a new feathered family. As soon as the varnish dried, I headed out after the snow-squall (yep, still having them) and added one more house 'For Rent'.
Notice, before hanging, the perch has been removed. I read that the birds do not need it and if not removed it becomes a place for predators to hang on as they do their dirty deed.
Well, we can't have that now.
So far, there was one little starling drop by for a tour of the popular blue house.
She stayed awhile and looked at the home from many angles. I expect she may be back with her hubby to make the final decision.
It's an 'Open House'
The sun is out
and the creatures are stirring.
Wishing you a lovely day.
