Another birdhouse. This one was a gift for friends that own a campground. they have been so helpful and thoughtful in many ways.

Tim, this is all right. I assume that there’s a pretty good supply of food in the camp store so it’ll be pretty handy for the birds.

Great job! I love all the little details! Did you cut out little asphalt shingles or just paint it to look like them? Either way is equally impressive to me!

Hi Mike. I scribe them from shingle scraps. My four year old Grandson loves to break them apart for me. He actually asks me for more little squares when he comes over.

How do the birds like it? What kind of birds does it draw?

Hi Thomas
Most nest boxes dimension and hole size / placement is for the Purple Martin. Up here we do get alot of other birds that typically “steal” nests. Generally if you clean the nest box out every fall, the other birds tend to fly on by. Too lazy I guess.

My late uncle in Germany would have loved to see your bird house(s) as he had a very tiny shop and loved to build, you guessed it, bird houses, bird palaces, and feeding stations. I know he would have talked your ear off about these.

I once lived in the land of 10,000 lakes and went on vacation at Crosslake for many years. Knew that area very well!

Oh, by the way I like your work too! The attention to detail is outstanding!
