Plain and Simple
It's plain and simple.
The birds out our way have quite an array of housing to choose from.
As you can see, we don't go for all the fancy decorated and painted houses.
In fact, the birdhouse in the above photo with the "North" sign under it, was modified by a few of our fine feathered friends a few years ago. Apparently they wanted a picture window.
Now although we have no fancy houses, what we do provide in addition to the small creek, are trees, shrubs and berry producing bushes that give them a little extra nutrition. Blueberries, raspberries, Pyracantha, along with a variety of shrubs and perennials to attract the bees and Hummingbirds are scattered throughout the yard for their enjoyment.
We prefer the plain and simple. You know the weathered and worn, like us....au naturale. And, as you can see, the male Eastern Bluebird who has a mouth full seems to appreciate it...:)
The past few days that's what I've been up to...
giving them a plain and simple welcome.
