Wood shingle roof and stoen walls, I put a thick layer of grey urethane caulk on then pushed the stones into it. It worked pretty well. It survived the last hurricane we had her in Florida!!

Wow! This is one fantastic looking birdhouse. I really like the stone and how you applied it. I like everything about it. It has a European look. Very nice!

Great job, very unique twist on a common project. I had a birdhouse up for a year before a wren moved in, then the wren was evicted by sparrows who trashed the place.

Wilp, Your birdhouse is a real beauty!

@ Leafherder Those English House Sparrows are a real nuisance. They are attacking and killing our native song birds. This is a good website to learn about those HOSP pests. http://www.sialis.org/hosp.htm

Just beautiful! I really like the stone walls. Don’t worry about the birds moving in, they will find it. We had one out for three years, it almost just become a decoration until a family of bluebirds moved in.

Great design.
It stimulates my weak creative juices and I’m thinking I could do something with more wood, like cross cut branches to simulate a cord wood construction.

Attracting birds is all about having the right size entrance hole for the birds you want to attract. For some species this can be critical to avoid predation by other birds like Starlings, English sparrows and jays.

Just love it. Did you make the shingles or purchase them? If so, where?
