Wild & Wacky Birdhouses and Feeders

Wild and wacky is for sure!!! When I first got the book I immediately started picking out the birdhouses that I would like Rick to build this year. But, before I knew it I think I had every birdhouse checked.

  • There is a cute "piano" feeder that will be a perfect draw prize at my brother's annual Bluegrass Jamboree
  • There is a unique "robin" house for, you guessed it, robins! I just have to have one of those
  • There are cutesy birdhouses that just beg to be built

The fantastic variety of projects will be perfect not only for my "mini forest" that I am creating on my piece of land, but also great for gifts.

Rick has already made one of the projects as a Christmas present. It was definitely a hit and there were demands for more within seconds of the unwrapping.
