    I love your bird house. It reminds me of my first bird house that I built back in high school. Mine is still actually used as a bird feeder at my mothers house.

    Oh and welcome to the site! It's always fun to see new people here and there. If you have any questions feel free to ask anyone, we all try to be nice here.
