First Thoughts of Spring: The Sweetest Window-Mount Bird House!

March 10th, 2015 Posted in Home & Garden | No Comments »

A few months ago I purchased Kettle Moraine’s window-mount style bird house and can’t wait until Spring arrives, fairly soon too, to get a first glimpse of a feathered friend’s growing brood!  I have to admit that the initial placement wasn’t the best… huhhh lesson learned… and I must move it soon, that is, after the ice around it melts :(.  Before placing it outdoors and tethered on metal wiring (because I don’t exactly trust the grip of any little suction cups; even though there are three), I stained the cute wooden house a very light brown in hopes to extend its outdoor longevity.  Though I must scoot the house over to the other side, the spot seems otherwise perfect because I have a casual dining set up which will allow me to watch how the birds are doing while providing them enough shade and privacy (I have a vintage valance with small cut-out designs).   Fingers crossed, I hope my Carolina wren or chickadee mom will eventually take residence :)!  Should this fortunate happenstance occur, I will be sure to update all of you bird-lovers with photos…
