While most of our feathered friends have flown south for the winter, now is a perfect time to make some birdhouses for when they return!
I have attached two photos of a bird house that I constructed for our garden.
The structure is built from recycled cedar fencing and the openings are covered with a strip of aluminum to prevent other animals from entering.
I used drop ceiling hardware to support the wire for the birds to sit on. The roof of the house is slate that I salvaged from a house many years ago, the front panels are screwed to the main carcass and can be removed for cleaning.
I supposed these structures are built for purple martins but I will accept any tenants.
