A facebook friend in Switzerland asked me if I’d make a bird house for his mother. He wanted Cardinals & Blue Jays on it as those are her favorite birds. This is what I ended up with. I had it sitting out on a picnic table so the Poly could dry, when I went to pick it up to take back into the shop a Blue Jay stuck its head out of the hole & then proceeded to wiggle its way out. Needless to say, it startled me! He/she/it had to really work to get back out of the whole, makes me wonder how long it took it to get into it! I had thought I made the hole small enough that the bigger types of birds couldn’t get in it! LOL

Thank you! It was also my first attempt at drawing/painting, not real pleased with the cardinal, but do like how the blue jay turned out. Evidently, the blue jay did too since it moved in…lol
