This is the front of my new lighthouse birdhouse that I FINALLY was able to put up. It is in place of my old one. What shoud have taken a few minutes ended up taking the better part of a morning. The old house was so rotted that it literally fell apart as I attempted to take it down. When I tried to attach the new house, the screws from the old one somehow managed to get in the way. This all while standing 6-8 feet up in the air on a ladder! Finally, after the better part of the morning had passed, I was able to get it all attached. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you have seen pictures of the old house. One of my favorites is the picture of the tree frog peaking out of the lower level.
This is the old house but with baby wrens peaking out of the top level. In the heat of the day, the tree frog would peak out of the bottom. I haven’t been able to find that picture but when I do, I will share it.
Tonight I was really excited because in the top of the house is a solar light. It was on and I was able to get a picture of it. I’m also going to share the back part of the house so you can see where the bird will actually enter and exit. I’m hoping my wrens come back again but we’ll see.
