These are all made from reclaimed barn wood.
They will all be mounted 8 ft in the air.

yah… so unless the size of this wagon in also an optical illusion.. these birdhouses are indeed HUGE. You must get a lot of people driving by just to check out your birdhouses.

I think this set is my favourite.

The wagon is 4 ft wide and 6 ft long.
It sure makes moving them a whole lot easier.
I am getting a few more of them this year.

I notice a couple more around the yard.

I’d bet there aren’t any blueberries nearby.

John, I have been wondering why all the birds in Indiana have left…....! They have migrated to Ontario. Canada!

Do these bird houses have access to clean out all the bird poo? With great big and mulit-bird condos come great amounts of bird poo. (Just trying to be funny here, on a scant few occasions I am not.)

John this is your best birdie condo yet! Please keep up the great work!

Nice town houses John. Good talent and imagination. The blue bird’s in l.a. (lower Alabama) would move in fast. Semper Fi!

Thanks again mrtrim
I live on a 100 acre farm so it is pretty tough to see any bird doo doo in one specific area. lol

great job on all the houses, they look great.
what size hole do you use? do you use the same size on all your bird houses?
