Low Rent Birds

We have a whole lotta birdhouses. We have about 3 of the fiber "hive" style (all unoccupied), store-bought styles made of wood (unoccupied), cutesy store-bought metal ladybug (unoccupied), a couple of ones I made from plastic corrugated yard signs (unoccupied), a couple of multi-unit condo styles on tall poles (probably partially occupied, hard to tell), about 5 plastic "gourd" styles (maybe a couple occupied, not sure)...

...but instead of choosing one of those, some birds have made a nest in this ripped-up party balloon that is lodged in a tree.


They do whatever they please.

Damn tenants! They never do what their landlords want or expect.

Nice collection of bird houses, by the way.

We have a parrot, and we've tried to give it boxes of raisins to eat.

He will open the box, throw out the raisins, and then eat the empty box.

Birds have no sense of monetary value. That's why you never see one driving an expensive car.

Debra, should we shop around for some more ripped balloons and hang them? ;-)
Katy, silly parrot! Kids and pets often like the box better than the contents.
