This is slick. Don’t be surprised when birds move in, they aren’t real picky about where they park. Nice project, this would be good to do with my grandchildren.

Cool idea, do you mind if I make one.

If you do make one… Cut the tops off the can …. That will give the birds more room to get in

I think I’ll get started gathering materials tonight. I’ll start by emptying some beer cans. If said beer happens to make its way to my stomach, so be it.

If I were a bird I’d be all over that thing. :) It would be party time at my house.

Cool birdhouse and recycle of beer cans. I’m sure they will love it. Looks good in every yard and garden.

Hey that’s slick and really clever, when winter comes and the birds are gone, you only have to dump the beer cans and put new ones, no cleaning needed! Brilliant! This will be in my to-do list ;)
