Bird House

I love birds. I love watching them. I love listening to their beautiful songs. I just love birds period! So of course I have bird feeders all around the homestead. I have all kinds of birdhouses around too. When a teenage boy took a curve a little too fast and took our mailbox for a ride I decided to use it for another birdhouse. We got a new and bigger mailbox so why not let the birds have a new and bigger house.
First I painted it using paints given to me over the year by friends and customers. Then I got William to cut a square hole in the door of the mailbox but only on 3 sides. I wanted to lift the metal up from the hole to have a awning or cover for the hole. It now looks like a little cottage and hopefully a bluebird or wren will rent it soon.

The great thing about this is it cost zero dollars and only about an hours worth of time.

    Please drill some half inch or larger holes in the box for cooling air, probably in the back panel, so that the inside will not become an oven..
