It took long enough, almost 9 months. They moved in and have been busy remodeling to suit their needs. House sparrows. I was hoping for finches or bluebirds, but they will be fine.

They should be fine in that house. You’ve gotta love the birds.

Nice birdhouse Hairy. It’s a great feeling when they move in. Now you can just sit back and enjoy the show and all the worm traffic and noise when the chicks arrive. We have been feeding the birds this winter and spring. They eat more than I do! and that’s a lot.
