From bats to birds....
Dean is cutting down a big gnarled tree that wasn't pruned properly. Since he had a big ladder out, I asked him to help me with an idea.
I intended to put an old bat box up...but then decided against it. The yard is small and we have pets and kids....I decided that if it did attract bats, I didn't want their guano in the yard. After all, bats don't use litter boxes!
It was too nice to just toss so I did a bit of research and found that the box is the right size for red headed woodpeckers.
Dean took over from there. He added a removable floor, some ventilation holes and the little entry hole. He also on added the little perch for 'looks.'
Now I'm crossing my fingers they will use it....or that SOME bird will!
