Crafting for Our Feathered Friends
Backyard birding has been an obsession around here. Not a day goes by that we don't stop to watch the flurry of activity in our yard. We have witnessed chipping sparrows leaving their nest, watched a mama and papa house wren feeding their babies, observed the eastern phoebe fly back and forth from the nest and now another set of house wrens are building a nest in the eaves of the house. It is thrilling to watch and has us reaching for the binoculars regularly throughout the day.
With so much activity in the backyard another feeder is always welcome. Reece and I sat down last week to build this fun and easy feeder. It was a great way to pass some time on a hot and humid afternoon and it looks wonderful hanging in our yard. And yes, the birds do love it!
