new tennants

After years of neglect, a family has finally moved into the lobster shack!

I've had this bird house for years, and the only thing to ever take up residence were bees!  Now, after years of weathering, it is falling apart and I get a bird family.

Geez, does this make me a slum lord?

I have noticed birds tend to be fussy about the color of the nest boxes. I put up ten boxes this year and the colored ones remain empty while all the plain wood have residents - 7 pairs of sparrows and my one pair of bluebirds :)

They wanted a home with a lived-in feeling.

Lovely wren couple....they thought the lobster shack was just the right size for their little family. Will be fun to watch!

If bees were in my birdhouse, I would be getting rid of birdhouse.

We get Down East, the Maine Magazine. Recently they showed a photo of a famous, weathered "Lobster House." Yours is weathered, too, and now home to a happy family. They will be back!
What a colorful, lively place you have - a robin at your hearth and tenents out back! Aloha.

Maybe the birds needed to "bee" sure no real lobsters were going to move in. That why the previous tenants were bees.

Your new tenants are so pretty! May be they found the used bee house is a honey sweet home for them now.

House wrens! They sing the neatest bubbly song! How fun!
