A birdhouse that makes a statement...

Hi Everyone!  Happy Thursday!  Here's a look at the tall birdhouse I made for my mother.  It is about 5 1/2 feet tall (including the base).  The birdhouse is made from cedar.  The roof is kind of hard to see but it's from a small cedar picket fence that you use around shrubs or flowers that I recycled.  The same pickets are used to make a fence around the base of the stand.  The stand is made from recycled barn boards from my farm and is filled with bricks to help weigh it down.

It sits at my parents front door and my dad has to move it on a hand truck when they put it away for the winter.  But it does make a statement and looks great from the street.  And no one in their neighborhood has one like it!  Well, thanks for stopping by.
