(Animated birds in Spring)
Here, let me rub against that. =^..^= Don't worry...it was dry.
I'm thinking Spring.
I found a bird-house that looked worse for wear in the garage today so I gave it a fresh coat of paint and prettied it up for Spring.
I'm hoping a little Chickadee or brown Wren will take a fancy to it and make it their home.
What would be cuter than baby birds at the mouse-house?
Well, maybe a kitten, but again...just dreaming. *grin*
Yes, I'm thinking Spring even though we have six loooong weeks to go.
Just in case a little Chickadee or Wren takes a liking to this rent-free home, I put a little rustic porch at the front for momma when she just has to get away from those screaming kids for awhile.
I'm a mom....I remember. ;-)
Another month and it will be time to put those 2 inch pieces of
out in a suet cage to help provide material for momma-bird-to-be
to build that beautiful nest.
Something important to remember is to use neutral colours when you can so the bird nests in trees are not made visible to predators.
Bright colours will attract them more easily.
And we don't want that now, do we.
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one dreaming of Spring.
