Homeless Birdie Guilt


Me and T have been fighting birds. Yes, that's right, we are at war with the birds around our house. The birds have decided the place where our stove vents from our house is the perfect place to set up a nest. Not only is this a dangerous idea for them to have it isn't exactly attractive when they stuff random bits of debris in the vent. So as they work tirelessly to find just the right fluffy nest bits and fly them over to stuff into the vent again and again we come and rip it out. Again and again. We are tired of this game and I feel bad for their work being for nothing. I imagine the husband bird trying to explain to the wife bird why their new home is taking forever to build. She's ready to have baby birds and he said it would be done a week ago.


So we have decided we need to build or buy a bird house so they will leave our vent alone. Also so I can sleep at night without the guilt of the homeless birdie babies hanging over me. ;) Here's a few of my favorites. Which would you choose?

I think we like the first one the best too but we are trying to decide to buy or build. The way gas has gone up we might need that extra $ on the trips we'll be taking this summer.

I think All three are really cool! I would like to have them myself. I have recently started enjoying birds and am starting to collect some houses. I think it is really sweet that you are trying to find a replacement home for your new tenants. If you get tired of constantly removing the debri you might try hanging some ribbon above it that will move with the wind, it seems to really work.

Thank you Adriane for the suggestion. I think I'll try that.
