|I think this round bird house is quite unusual. Gary made it from the wheels of the duck feeder when we decided to retire it. You can view a photo of this duck feeder here.|
|This painted wren house was made to the exact specifications of one that had been in the yard and was falling|
|apart. I painted it using some One Stroke Painting techniques I had just learned. There is also a predator guard on the front.|
|Gary grew up on a Dairy Farm, so he decided to make a barn bird house to remind him of his former life. The funny thing is, I don't think they ever had a barn like this.|
|This gray bird house was made from recycled boards that already had a gray cast to them. I was able to make the new pieces look old with gray acrylic craft paints.|
|Have you ever noticed that the American Robin always likes to make her nest on top of a light fixture or under the eaves of the house? Well, put up a nesting shelf like this one and you can help prevent that problem.|
|Bird houses are not just for the outdoors. Here is a display on the top of one of our bookcases.|
|When putting up bluebird houses, put them up in pairs, on a post between 5'-6' high and about 6' apart.|
|Bluebirds like to choose their houses, which is why you should always have more than one. Many times, you'll get swallows in one box and bluebirds in another, which is nice.|
