{Bird House from Wood Trail Scraps}

Husband Pieter did create a lovely Bird House, built from the Wood Trail Scraps.
Below this post you find a link with photos, where you can see him building the Wood Trail.


This is the result...
One more lovely home for our feathered friends!

      We got numerous bird houses and they're made of different materials.
      Pretty is not important for the birds; as long as they find shelter!

  2. Dearest Mariette,
    Thank you for sharing such a nice piece of inspiration. People today just buy kits to make different things including bird houses. You guys are amazing. Your husband must be a natural in creating things. A bird house from scraps of wood - - - -, this shows the value he has for wood itself and birds.

  3. Dearest Mariette, Mother Nature's creatures are so blessed to visit your beautiful gardens ... and what a lovely bird house Pieter has built ..a safe little haven from the elements for a feathery friend. As always you inspire to make use of what is simply laying about and put our creative minds to work. Wishing you both a beautiful week. hugs and blessings Celia M. (HHL)

    1. Dearest Celia,
      Our garden does indeed provide a lot of shelter by means of shrubs and trees and also bird houses that we hung all over. Squirrels often ruin them... so it is an ongoing job to repair or replace them.
      Enjoy your week as well and sending you hugs and blessings.

  7. Great nest box, Pieter!
    You are very skilled! Thanks Mariette for sharing this with us, I am quite impatient to know who will adopt it :)
    We have built hundreds for our parrots when we were breeding them, it reminds me of that time long gone!

      Thank you and we hope it will get used by some feathered friends.
      Birds do need plenty of shrubs and trees in order to feel safe enough to build any nests, in trees or in bird houses.
      Happy new week to you already.
      Hugs and love,

  12. Lieve Mariette,

    Nestkasten zijn er in verschillende vormen en maten zowel eigen gemaakt als te koop.Het aanbod is zo divers, omdat vogels erg kieskeurig zijn in het uitzoeken van een goede nestplaats.
    Over het algemeen is de vorm van een nestkast niet zo belangrijk,wanneer een nestkast voor een bepaalde vogel te groot is, zal hij deze van binnen opvullen met takjes en veren zodat deze wel aan zijn behoeften voldoet.
    Weet wel dat nestkastjes bij voorkeur gemaakt moeten worden van onbehandeld hout,dat de vliegopening de juiste afmetingen moeten hebben en geen uitsteeksels mogen hebben waar vogels zich aan kunnen verwonden tijdens het in en uitvliegen.
    Ben eigenlijk wel heel benieuwd naar het soort vogel die zijn intrek gaat nemen in dit door Pieter gemaakt nestkastje.

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Het allerbelangrijkste is dat de vogels een aanvliegroute hebben vanuit een boom of struik waarin ze neer kunnen strijken. Ook moet er voedsel zijn voor de broedperiode etc.
      De vliegopening wordt hier vaak uitgevreten (groter gat gevreten!) door de eekhoorns en dat is een probleem omdat we altijd moeten repareren en vervangen.
      We hebben heel wat soorten vogeltjes in onze tuin en amper tijd om ons verdekt op te stellen om te kunnen zien wie er waarin vliegt...
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  13. Hello Mariette, Although the birds might not care about the appearance of their house, I'm sure it makes a difference to human visitors to your yard. Pieter's handiwork has natural and rustic good looks that will certainly provide a universal appeal.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      As long as those birdhouses do blend in with the natural environment, birds don't care about the looks of their houses. It always gives Pieter something to do on a rainy day and there always is need for more.
      Kindest regards and thanks for your visit and comment!

      Vandaag, op Moederdag, was er een Mis ter nagedachtenis aan Moeder, waar mijn Vader met 3 van zijn 7 kinderen samen was. Wij hadden hier onze eigen mis, 6 uur later...
