This Pandemic Is For The Birds. No, Real Birds.
As I now have been home for about 1 month. I have been busy getting all sorts of things done around the house. Which also includes working on one of my other obsessions. Bird Houses. For some reason I love these things, and love having birds around the house, and in there own ones.
As with anything in my life, I had not realized this has become an obsession, until I have been here looking at every corner and sq inch of the yard.
So today, Bird Houses. Just peaceful bird houses.
As my mom would say. This one is for the birds
But nice collection. Now you need to make a runabout condo hole in the transom another in the engine compartment and another in the bow
This was our 2018 snow storm here in SC. A blue bird house I built many years ago.
The boathouse is due for some pandemic attention. I am sure somehow the birds will get a partial home there. I need to creativly keep them away from the boat
Never happen they have too much fun dive bombing
What do “Bird House Forums” talk about.
Is a modern post more reliable than an original post?
Are construction materials an issue (after all there are no fiberglass trees)?
Are there any taboo houses (pontoon houses)?
Do they do birdhouse events?
Are new birdhouses just bath tubs in the eyes of the purists?
Do they have their own ACBS (Antique and Classic Birdhouse Society)?
the ACBHS is genius.. Hold on, gonna start one
Who knew! Very cool report. Loved all the photos.
Good thing the Purple Martin house isn’t a feeder; what a chore it would be to refill it!
Thanks for bringing up this topic, I just took a quick stroll around my still dormant northern Minnesota cabin, and counted close to 20 bird houses. Here is my favorite: check out the spiral tree trunk that it sits on. I also walked past the burn pile where 2 once proud bird houses are ready for final cremation.
……………and lots of guano…………..justsaying
Looks like the purple martians have a stay-at-home order too. Same with the trout I’ve been trying to catch.
I have the same obsession…. I have made sooooo many… here are two….
Thanks for sharing. It was a pleasure to see them all.
Here is my shot at it, now u want to do a stained and varnish one
Recycling in the woods…
I never get tired of old birdhouses myself, Matt.Love to build em too.It’s like the same connection as with old boats.Love the patina on some,others look great brand new.So surprised to see this today, just made a couple of simple ones in the basement with my daughter the past couple of weeks.Great time killer.Header shot could make a great book cover.
Don’t forget Troy, I bet they at the ACBirdhouseS are freaking out that they need many new younger folks to join up!
Love your little birdhouses!
Love this post… said one bird house to the other.
No really, I love this post today.
count me in on the acbhs my bluebirds Ist litter fledged last week and I saw then emerge!
Just back from Going Boating!
