Window Bird House

 Gift in the mail from Ruth!


Trial fit on the window.
The pictures aren't lined up right. Oh, well. Ruth bought us each one of these window bird houses. I couldn't figure out the mylar, so I called her to ask about it and she put hers together while we talked. I had a couple of 'Lookie-loos' within half an hour. No takers yet.This is going to be interesting. (If the suction cups hold) I couldn't put it in one of my room windows, it would be too hot in the sun. It's in the kitchen window, so I can watch from the table.

  1. Love watching the birds. I love to sat on my deck and just watch and listen to them sing.

  5. That seems like a great idea, but I'm wondering about any mess the birds might leave on the glass and how hard it might be to clean off.
    It will be nice to be able to watch the birds though. I hope they don't mind. They'll probably watch you too.

    1. There is a clear 'glass' in the back, so I shouldn't have much trouble with that.

  6. An interesting way to watch birds. I hope they take advantage of the new house. Watch out for bees though. I had a house that the birds used for years, but then the bees took over and although they're not there now the birds won't go into the box.

    1. I did think about the the paper wasps and the mud daubers. At least I can watch and hopefully keep them out of there.

  7. Oh, how cool!!!!

    Oh my, I do hope the suction cups hold! That would be awful, to have a bird house full of eggs, or birds, go tumbling to the ground.

    Hope it works.

  8. How exciting! For Christmas Younger Son bought us a camera to put in the bird-box he'd previously bought me. And it's all still waiting to go up ...

    1. Think you better hurry, or the birds will already be done shopping for homes. :-)

  9. Ooh, how fun. I've always wanted to try one of these but was afraid of the window getting spattered with bird droppings. I'll be anxious to see/heara how it goes.

    1. I don't see where there would be a big problem with droppings. :-)

    2. Good to know. I'll be anxious to see when a nest is built.

  10. What a fun gift. I hope that it works out well. I, too would be concerned at how well it will hold. Fingers crossed for you.

I've taken a long break. Sorry. Using comment moderation, I think.
