Birdhouse Update

After sitting idle for a month we assumed that nothing was going to inhabit our bird house. You know, the one I’d written about in March . The “purple martin house” put up in Idaho where there are no purple martins! At least that’s what the bird house instruction map showed. While working in the garden yesterday, we saw some kind of bird fly in and lots of little chirps from baby birds coming from inside. I’m happy to report that we have “tree swallows” and they love purple martin houses.


If you’re wondering, YES, that’s a TV antenna on the roof disguised to look like a perch. We weren’t going to buy a satalite dish for birds but we did install digital television. Now they too can enjoy all one chanel that can be picked up here (on a good day).
