Birdhouses

While I was visiting one of my brothers the other day I noticed a birdhouse in his yard that I’d built for him a number of years ago. I built quite a few of ‘em and sold ‘em. Didn’t make much money on ‘em - fun to build but too many manhours. 

I posted a pic on a resurrected thread where evidently nobody is seeing it so I thought I’d post it here. 



These were all fourplexes. I also built a bunch of matching feeders - 2 feeding ports on four alternating sides - 8 sides total. I don’t have any photos of those, though......

    That's an awesome birdhouse.  Best I've seen in years.

    Hopefully, the poorer birds can get some supplemental help from the gummint in order to afford to move in.  Unless you're OK with discriminatory practices.

    Thanks for the kind words. They give me a kinda warm, fuzzy feeling. 

    Actually, Peter @peter4jc, I sold them all to philanthropists so the birdies get to live rent-free. It’d be even better if someone could figure out a way to keep the &@#€¥# dog-in-the-manger bluejays away from them. Greedy bastidges........   :#

    That birdhouse is a work of art.

    I know, You're a big dog and I'm on the list.
