As a former midwesterner, I miss the beautiful cardinals (we don't have 'em in Oregon).  My husband had this old parts bin in his shop for a long time. He kept saying he was going to use it, but hasn't, so I stole it. I put it on my front porch and filled all the "nest boxes" with shredded paper. I know the paper mache cardinals appreciate it. :^}

suewhitney writes: Ah, hahahaha! Good story. Stealing from your husband ...'at a girl! I'm so bad. The old tool bin is so cute like this...far better than sitting in the garage. I'm sure the paper mache cardinal does appreciate his new home.

Be Well,

Aunt_B writes: I love your bird hotel! In East Texas, we had cardinals build 3 nests in the enclosed courtyard outside our classroom last spring. It was wonderful to watch the babies -- right outside our window. Even the "jaded" junior high kids got a kick out of it. Posted: 8:02 pm on December 8th
