I'm already looking for a few unique and well-built houses for my resident birds this winter. We have lots of wood in our garage left over from building the mouse-house so when I mentioned I want some new bird-houses the retired-guy said he would build me some once he's done with his projects (which will never end, by the way). "Just find one you like and show it to me." *grin*
For some unique and pretty bird-houses check this out.
I picked out the fourth, fifteenth and eighteenth photo.
Here in Ontario, we are in the middle of another heat-wave. With high humidity and temperatures over +32C, we also get frequent rain storms late evening and during the night. This is very common when we are experiencing these high temperatures.
Rain brings fresh bugs and worms for our local birds to feast on.
This morning we had 13 visitors to the mouse-house. 13! I'm just a tad superstitious so I'm hoping this visit does not bring us bad luck.

Here's what they look like close up.
Not an easy face to look at first thing in the morning.
Have a good day and stay cool.
