I figured that I might as well show you a few more birdhouses.

They look so nice, & inviting hanging in the woods.

You’ll notice that the Squirrels remodeled the entries on everyone of them.

They think they own this territory I guess.

At least they haven’t evicted us from our cabin yet.<;O)

So lovely.

Perhaps you could show us a picture of your cabin’s door so we can check for squirrel marks.

You got to make them squirrels there own hangout and keep them fat or put a few drops of Tabasco sauce around the entry :)

Nice birdhouses….on the third one, how did you do that, is that peeled birch bark around a cylinder, that is my favorite one….real rustic…

Thank you Frank!

I just put a widget here, about the Birch log birdhouses.

Debbie!

Now I’ll have to find a door for our cabin, because the Squirrels ate it. LOL

Do you empty the squirel nests out Dick or do you let them fill up?

Nice birdhouses Dick. Maybe you sshould build an eagle or owl habitat. Things could then get interesting! Thank you for sharing.

Even with the squirrels.

I love birds. I recently built a combination bird feeder/ squirrel feeder that is always busy! My girl bought a book on identifying birds and I think I have seen at least twenty different species so far.

Have your say...
