It’s never too late to put up another birdhouse for the birds as certain ones will even shelter in them over the cold winter, not to mention they look great. “Barnboard Birdhouses” by Craig Forcier is definitely a green, eco-friendly little operation. “My Birdhouses and Feeders are made of 99% repurposed materials. The Barnboard is saved from a trip to the landfill or bon-fire and the metal from old buckets and cans removed from the side of a trail or road while out on many a bird watching hike.”
His work caught my eye because I paint on ancient barn wood and I really love the look of these bird homes, earthy and natural. The one pictured above is a favorite, made with the birds in mind, no perches as this discourages predators. $74
And another barn styled home. So simple, charming and made for easy cleaning. $54
