I bought a birdhouse kit that is actually a project for children, but my idea was my friend and I would assemble the birdhouses while chit-chatting over coffee. So that's exactly what we did. A couple of cups of coffee one morning and we each assembled and painted a birdhouse. They are very small, the one shown in the picture is 5” x 5”. I get a variety of birds in my yard all the time so I placed this tiny birdhouse in a tree expecting the smaller birds to be attracted to it. House finches are common to this area and they're small. Then one day I saw a cactus wren in the birdhouse....It's time to get a bigger birdhouse!

Thanks Susan! I get flickers here too, I can just imagine one of them hanging off the side of a hummingbird feeder.
Your pictures remind me of the flickers (rather large woodpeckers) who feed from our hummingbird feeders. They're way too big, but they hang off the side and have figured out how to get to the nectar! Birds are pretty crafty characters. Speaking of crafty, I love your bird feeder with wind chime craft kit. How fun!
So true MBC!
Too funny - where there is a will there is a way!
I know tealmermaid! I don't know how he got in there, or out!
Definitely time for a bigger birdhouse!
You are right on all counts mihgasper!
Maybe you need a whole housing complex - for bigger and smaller birds. Don't forget the rocking chair for you to enjoy watching and listening at the music events!
Yes DerdriuMarriner, and busy hands don't reach for the donuts!
candy47, It's always fun to be able to cross off garden and home projects over a delicious cup of coffee or tea in good company!
