New Home

The newest addition to my birdhouse menagerie is this white number swinging up back. Unlike others sprinkled around the garden, this one's simply a gray-white. It's hanging from one of our outbuildings that houses the rototiller, a push mower and other assorted, seasonal junk. I usually add one of two 'new homes' each spring to take the place of those that have seen better days or have simply fallen apart due to the elements. You see some of my houses are permanently attached to trees. They never come down. I have one that is about 20 feet up a tree and has survived about 15 years. How you say? Well, I bent an old license plate (tag) over the top, and this does a super job sheltering it from the elements. Don't ask me why, but I nailed about 5 old wristwatches, without straps, to the front. It's a pretty unique look.
It's for the birds.
Time flies!

  4. Boy, we have to "watch" you all the "time." Methinks you've been barking up the wrong tree, though.

  8. Dandy housing for the birds. Good idea to keep the little bug eaters around.
    Now we have to see the 'watch' house.

  12. Bird houses are fun. For the past several years I've been building birdhouses. They are easy woodworking projects. Give most of them away to family and friends. Your comment about watches and time flying was funny. Enjoy your feathered friends.
