You guys are awesome! Thank you so much. So I’ve discovered that I get a lot of “Carolina Wrens” in my yard. And one even made her nest in my BBQ cover. I felt horrible because I had no clue and didn’t see it until it was too late. Though I will admit that the wren’s in my yard are not as “round” as I see here. Here’s a link to the birds I’m hoping will find a home with me. :D

With your guys help I was able to streamline my search, learn about the birds’ native here, and find a suitable house! Do you want to work for Wagner Meters…you experts you!?

Now…here’s the link to what I’ll be building…

The best news….my first woodworking project will be with red cedar!!!!! So it’s going to smell lovely! Now I’ll call on the experts here…how do I ensure it’s of the right moisture content? How is red cedar’s moisture content and where can I purchase some? Is it an easy wood to cut?

Thanks so much! I’m so excited…no worries I plan to Twitter and blog about my experiences with building my very first bird house. ;)
