Today I’m putting up a new birdhouse. This one is for Robins and Swallows. They are both looking for nesting sites and last year a Robin built her nest on top of our wood pile right next to the entrance to the garage. Every time we walked near there or went into the garage, she flew out! The same went for the wood pile. I’m hoping that this new house will encourage nest building in a more humanly suitable spot. For many years the Robins would nest under the pool deck of our above ground pool. Year after year, they came and nested there. When we took the pool and the deck down, I think it left nesting areas up for grabs. Hopefully this house will help the birds out. My plan is to put it up and then keep tabs on it and see if it becomes occupied. This morning I’m just trying to determine the best place for it. Right after breakfast, the first thing on my agenda is to hang that house. I’m then going to get some fence posts and put them up for a couple of other houses I need to hang.
