Cory is a fan: Birdhouse Blessings

I stumbled across these darling birdhouses the other day on Etsy, from Birdhouse Blessings

Eeee!  So cute!  Yet again, more things I covet but cant have without any outside space with this flat.  One day I'll have a garden, one day!  And I will hang adorable birdhouses like these:

I remember when I was young my father made birdhouses.  One of them he made for a woodpecker, and it was long and deep - the woodpeckers liked it!

I've always been really interested in birds, and knowing what type were landing and eating seed on our porch - here in Britain there are many different birds to the ones I knew on Vancouver Island.  I think the Blue Tit has to be my favourite, tied with the itsy bitsy Robins they have over here!  TINY they are!

  1. Those bird houses had caught my eye on Etsy before too. I do have a garden but no trees mature enough for a bird house. We do get some lovely birds though, even though we're in a very urban area. We have two robins that visit regularly- one is the smallest I've ever seen! A couple of weeks ago we had a visit from a sparrowhawk, who just appeared on our fence! This morning we caught a glimpse of a lovely little bird- we're not sure what it was, my husband thinks maybe turtledove.
