my neighbors have a really awesome old birdhouse in their backyard that looks like this. it's like 5 birdhouses in one. i see it everyday out our bathroom window, i love it. i don't think birds use it anymore, it's in pretty rough shape. if i had any woodworking skills, i'd make one for our yard, since i'm lacking in that area, i painted one instead. just in the last week or so there has been so much happy bird chatter outside, i just love it. i can't help but think of spring and all the birds returning north from their winter journey. i have yet to see my first robin though.
