Husband Built A BIRD CAM Holder!

The man is seriously talented.  And generous with his time.  I am seriously blessed.  We had a great time hanging out at the barn all afternoon puttering around.  The day was positively balmy. 

Here is a photo of it trained on the new birdhouse.  It looks like one of those reality shows.  If any bluebirds move in, I suppose they'll be seriously dysfunctional. 

The whole time he worked on it, Evelyn sat in his van, in the driver's seat.  She looked positively ecstatic. 

I haven't seen any bluebirds around the new birdhouse (where the cam is pointed), but they are mobbing the old one that we set up on the other side of the yard.  Husband and I bought a 4 X 4 at Lowes to set it on but I think it if we are going to use it on the old house, we'll have to move fast.  Those bluebirds look ready to move in, notwithstanding the shaky foundation. 

Happy Quilting,

Penny, Evelyn and Pearl

How nice of him to do that! I just saw a blue bird last week at the hospital. We have gardens set up so that patients in the intensive care unit can look out and see plants/birds...there it was sitting on top of a small tree.

I see "his" attitude was tweaked, because after all, he's married to a saint.

I think my saintly attitude rubs off, at times. Perhaps my biggest accomplishment in life, so far, is to have not whomped him over the head from time to time. :)

Shogun, that is a sweet mental picture. Now, speaking of saints, may I point in your direction?

We're lucky to have bluebirds all year long here. I bet there's occupants of that new house in short order! Just give 'em a few days. And I'm SO jealous of the bird cam!
