Hi everyone
Now that spring is here it,s time to catch up on a few projects.

I started this birdhouse last year but didn,t finish because of the winter.
Well it,s warm now and no excuses:laughing:
This birdhouse is made from 120 yr old barn wood and has over 80 apartments.
It is 5 1/2 ft square.

I appologize for getting a bit off topic, but what kind of birds do you get to live in these unique houses? Most birds a very territorial, and won't let another bird of the same sex live that close. I know there are exceptions, like purple martins, so I'm curious.

Hi Dave
I get a lot different types of birds but i get mostly sparrows nesting in these houses.
I do build different types with smaller and larger holes to attract other birds but i don,t mix them up with sparrow houses.

Sparrows will live side by side no problem.

With the way the sun is shining on the colors of your first pic, that cat really blends in well. :laughing: I get a good chuckle everytime I look at him/her patiently waiting for the tenants to arrive.
