When I go thru my magazines I always mark something I would like to do. This was one of them. I found in the Birds & Bloom Extra. It’s a chickadee roosting box. To keep the little critters warm during the winter. It was a easy fun project and as you can see inside the dowels for them to perch on. I placed it on a tree stump and during that time…I had chickadees chirping from the tree next to the trunk…maybe they were telling me to hurry up! I used a satellite dish holder to brace it onto the trunk. Worked like a charm!
I watched and so far they like sitting on it…oh well give it some time and maybe they will figure it out.
Thanks for looking!

Looks good,

Maybe you’ll have to coax them in with some sunflower seeds in the entrance.

Pretty high tech stand!
