Cottages for Birds

Fun in the sun...fun at the cottage...and cottages for birds...

A home here high up on a pole by our shed....
 this is the 2nd year this birdhouse was rented...
 taking a walk to a neighbour's yard....a cottage nest could be up here....
 or hanging as high as the tallest pink flowers grow.....
back in our yard a pretty bird house on an antique shovel, a garden ornament....
 until we noticed the sticks in the entrance....was that a bird that flew out??
up close we could see it was stuffed with goodies for nesting....
The Welcome sign is for the wrens that seem to be moving in.  I painted this bird house and we just put it out a couple of weeks ago.  Luckily it hasn't rained because it isn't varnished yet.  Now I don't want to interrupt the family with painting.  Welcome.....
Do you have bird houses and nests in your garden?   Judi xoxo

Hi Judi! OH, you have a lot of little bird houses! How nice to know you have 'renters'! :)
Hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,

Sweet pictures. This is an ugh: every time we put up a birdhouse, the wasps get to it first. Seems nature knows who needs a home, eh?

I do have bird houses and enjoy them so much! We had some birdies build a nest on our front porch several years ago! I could watch them from the window! I even videoed them when the baby birds were hatched! So entertaining and sweet!

Have a blessed day dear Judi, HUGS!

Hello Judi, I too love bird houses. I am very partial to them. They just make me smile. Yours are delightful. We don't seem to get many birds to nest in them. I think we need to put them higher like yours.

Yes, the Cranberry Islands were so charming. They are not all inhabited and the couple that are can only travel to the mainland by boat. A different kind of life huh?
Have a great day tomorrow.
Hugs, Jeanne
