For the Birds

Warning - this post has a lot of pictures!

If you are a bird, you could find no better neighborhood than my father's yard. He and Amy work hard to make everyone welcome. There are a wide variety of accommodations. For example, here is a lovely arts & crafts style home.

Or, if you prefer, a couple of more rustic abodes (although the top one may already have a resident - see the small bird at the top of the picture).

Here are some other examples - just look at the fun artwork on the one on the top!


You could just do it yourself (there's a nest in there somewhere!)

Or choose this fixer-upper. Yes, it's upside down. I don't know why.


If you're feeling really adventurous you could choose to live in the bat neighborhood!


Of  course, one of the first things you check out in a new neighborhood are the eating & entertainment options. Below are examples of the restaurants and pools in the area.

  3. Out here, in the middle of nowhere, we don't see many birdhouses. Our birds an not so sociable, except for doves, which are just a giant pest.

  8. Dear The Bug,
    I love the birds, every single one, except possibly pigeons. (Buzzards are okay so long as they stay on their side of the terrain.)

    What a fun post!

  9. LOL LA - he has a big yard, so I don't think he notices any poop. And the back yard has two dogs in it who are WAY messier than the birds.

  10. They are all really unique and beautiful. It made me realize why so many birds in my subdivision try to nest in our bathroom vents and fireplaces, etc. We haven't provided them with any of these lovely homes. I think I could build a few of those. My grand daughter would love it!
