These look great John. When do you have the time to do all of these. Fantastic work as always. It's nice to see the Canadian flag flying on the front of the bird house. Canadians can be patriotic too.

They look great John. You deserve some kind of award from the Audubon people for providing so many safe-houses for birds. I bet you've single-handedly increased the bird populations in your area measurably.
