Ready For Immediate Occupancy

A while back, Mrs. Joe came home with an unfinished wood birdhouse from a craft store for The Champ. With the help of Mrs. Joe, he painted it with intentions of hanging it outside. Yesterday, while cleaning up his room, The Champ came across the birdhouse again and wanted to hang it outside. I figured we could attract some birds with a feeder to go with the birdhouse so we went to the store for a feeder and some birdseed.

We hung the birdhouse and feeder in a lilac bush next to the kitchen window.

The rest of the day yesterday along with this morning, Peanut and The Champ have been standing in the window waiting. So far, nothing has come. Although it might not help that they yell “here birdie” out the window.

Not that I claim to be an expert on birds, but free food and shelter should eventually attract something. I figure those robins from a few weeks ago might be looking for something with a roof over their heads.

I'm no expert on birds either. But I'm guess that birds will only take up residency during nesting season.

I could be wrong though

HERE BIRDIE!! That is awesome. I love kids. We have ALOT of handpainted wood stuff from the craft store. I should have thought to do something more practical than boxes and do a birdhouse.

They will find it ... eventually.

There is a reason we call stupid people "bird brains".

Once they find it, they will make a grand mess for the Champ to clean up.


Welcome to our world, where my son is in charge of refilling the feeders. He keeps threatening to shoot the birds with a sling shot, he gets so annoyed with the spilt seed.
