The birdhouse

A couple of years back, Missy made a really cool birdhouse in one of her school classes. We couldn't really find a good place for it at our old house, but when we moved here, Hubby sat it up on the privacy screen on the back patio, next to the house. 

I could see it from the front room lounge and it seemed like the perfect place. I watched birds check it out, getting closer and closer and finally dashing inside before hopping back out. I was excited about being so close to the nest and was looking forward to taking pictures of the goings on.

Bubba had brought us some 'gifts' of dead birds on occasion, but I don't think he even knew the birdhouse was there.

Phred, on the other hand, is a different story. When I heard him and his 'ginger' friend tromping across the roof of the house, I didn't think much about it. 

Then I saw this.


So much for watching the birds up close.

How on Earth did you find little me in Canada? I followed the path that lead me here. HELLO BETTY.
This is the cutest story. Now I'm wondering what is in the background? It looks like a beautiful Mountain...obviously in NewZealand... or are my eyes deceiving me?
Hi Phred.... would that be FRED, but spelled way different lol?
Ok enough of that.
Thanks for popping over.
Love Claudie
