Well, I picked out first place correctly. :) A fine gaggle of birdhouses emerged from all of this. CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners. Well deserved.

Edit: Oh look, I won too? Huh? I didn’t see that. Way cool. It will be worn proudly. Thanks LJ.

Thanks to this contest, and the talent and efforts of those who entered, the quality of life of the average bird has just been nudged upward, in the world :-)

Great job, All !

Thanks so much for voting me into second place! I am humbled by the beautiful artistry that went into all of the birdhouses. They are an inspiration and have certainly expanded my creative boundaries through viewing each and reading the accompanying anecdotes. I am proud to belong to such a collection of skill and imagination. The greatest reward here comes in the sharing of our gifts, and I believe a hearty “thank you” is due all of those entered the contest, and for that matter all of those who post on this site.

The contest was a lot of fun! I can’t wait for the next one!

CONGRATULATIONS grizzman and Transition! Awards well earned with your skills and creative endeavors.

It was an awesome contest and the quality and nature of all the entries was quite impressive. To reiterate your ending statements Transition…’it was (indeed) a lot of fun’... and I too… ‘can’t wait for the next one!’

What a variable show of birdhouses, from very simple to very elaborate, from very very small to very vary large.
Good contest.

Wow, that was a surprise! Thanks to all who voted.

So many talent craftspersons out there, and there were bird houses FAR SUPERIOR to mine.

I guess “random” works. Now, if only it worked in the mega lotteries, then I could truly retire ,- again.
