Not Big Enough!

You may remember the bird house I made in July
for One Month to Win It... 


Well the joke by my family, all summer was that "no bird will ever move in because I made the hole too small"... 

And so far, they've been right....
Until today....

I was sitting outside reading a book and I heard this tapping sound... I looked over and saw a woodpecker sitting on the perch banging away at the hole....

And before I laughed myself off my chair 
I took a picture with my phone... 



There he was... trying to make the hole bigger....
Really I swear! 

When he flew away I went over too get a closer look...

See....
He She was doing his her own home improvements!


So I did the only thing I could do... 
I helped her out...
I got out my drill and made the hole bigger for her...


Not perfect but it was the best I could do 
because I was standing on a chair, 
the birdhouse is already mounted to the fence...

So... the jokes over! 
You can move in now Mrs. Woodpecker!
Welcome Home!

  1. Susan, that is too cute. At least that woodpecker loved the house, and has an eye for a unique home. I don't blame it. I would have tried to call it home myself. Love it. Sweet of you to help the feathered friend out. Have a great day.

  2. This is great! I expected you to say a little house wren moved in. But this is way better :)

  3. Haha, Susan! Are you saying your birdhouse was a "fixer upper"? : ) They say there's a buyer for every house, so I guess you found yours. He's already renovating and it was nice of you to help him out.
