Saturday Critters #483

Every spring, the sparrows return to my favorite birdhouse and build their nest.
They are busy gathering twigs, feathers and leaves to create the perfect home for laying the eggs.
They build a perfectly shaped nest and the design appears flawless.
I took these pictures yesterday, although they are similar to the ones I take every spring.

The man of the house starts with feathers.

They stop often to stand guard and have a good look around.

Keeping an eye out for predators. 

The hubs bought me this birdhouse many years ago for my birthday,
I adore everything about it!

This is the card that came with the birdhouse.

As you can see and read, it contained so much information about the artist.
All of the materials used to build the birdhouse were special, recycled, making this one of a kind.
Having all of these details, really enhances the special quality of this home for birds.

Great birdhouse! We had a lovely bird feeder that a neighbor made years ago. It's long gone. We don't have any bird feeders or houses now as the feral cats would not make our yard a good site. But the sparrows, bluejays, etc. are still brave and come to eat out of the cat dishes.

Very neat birdhouse! Hard to believe nesting season is already here!

I bet it is just as fun every spring to watch them make their home even if it is the same every year, I like when they have their beaks full of stuff for their home. The other day one of our little sparrows had a big chunk of suet on his beak and he sat on the deck rail smacking it trying to get it off :)
