« Part 1: The Chickadees' are refurbishing our backyard Bear Carving. Part 2 of Carved Backyard Bear series no next part

We’ve been watching the Bear for over a week now, & the little birds haven’t shown up.

I think the bear didn’t meet the proper specifications, or the bird building code.

I also believe the Robins, & Squirrels may have scared them away.

It’s sitting too much out in the open, kind of low to the ground.

I’ve heard of birds starting a nest, & leaving it for a different location.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can see were the threshold of their door is wearing away, because it’s too punky.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Anyway, it was fun watching them as long as it lasted.

Here’s a short slideshow of the birds.

Hey Dick & Barb
This is the best Chickadees flick I’ve ever seen. My wife and I like to watch the different antics of the birds in our yard also. Don’t let the press get hold of this or there will be a headline”BIRD DEFEETS BEAR”

if you could elevate it to at least 6 feet, the wrens would like it.

Thanks Guys.

I think the poor old Bear is scared of height,

besides, I don’t think there’s strength in the wood to try put it on a post.

I don’t think they would trust the squirrels.
