We have several birdhouses. This particular one was already in the house when we moved and so it was literally was moved from room to room, shelf to shelf for several weeks.
This house is intended for bluebirds, who prefer a house in the open, with a little place to sit and check for predators before going “home”, and like it about 5 feet off the ground.
When I was tired of moving it, the garden fence was finally back up. So HorseyBug and I had a Bird Day. =) We hung this on the fence post of the garden fence.
Less then 6 hours later we noticed our new occupants:
Definitely not a blue bird…
but a very industrious little sparrow!
If you look close you can see the little head peeking out of the hole.
We had spent the day before hunting for the birdbath stuff and getting the food for the bird feeders (all those things are separate posts). Then all of us, but especially Horsey Girl and I got busy and spent the morning DOING things for our science/nature study needs. It was so fun, relaxing and pleasant. I cannot fully express my joy and satisfaction of this day.
He promised not to forget even the little sparrows.
Sometimes He uses birds and birdbaths to remind us that we can make the best of what we have –
and it is a perfect moment and life-lesson.
