Housing boom

Over the years we’ve added to the local bird housing stock. First a few. Now we’re up to ten little houses, including a couple of duplexes. Tree swallows are the tenants. We’ve numbered each house as we’ve watched for new families. This is unit six, this year’s most active property.

Birds perch on the tree branches we’ve attached to the posts. I like to think they’re enjoying the view.

  1. What a terrific thing to do. . .ten bird houses!

    “Hope” is the thing with feathers – (314)
    BY EMILY DICKINSON
    “Hope” is the thing with feathers –
    That perches in the soul –
    And sings the tune without the words –
    And never stops – at all –

    And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
    And sore must be the storm –
    That could abash the little Bird
    That kept so many warm –

    I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
    And on the strangest Sea –
    Yet – never – in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb – of me.

  2. What a brilliant idea to attach the branches Kay, good for the birds and good for you to be able to catch them with your camera, hope you’ve got a long lens 😊
