    Not bad Don. Where do you get the birds. You just made me want totake a detour tomorrow in the shop and try one of those.

    The perfect ones Bernie posts are a little to far above my pay grade to achieve.

    Hey why dont we have a birdhouse Xmas swap or contest like Chuck did the snowman thing.
    cheers

    The birds I get from Micheal's craft store they are made by Ashland. I imagine any place like hobbie lobbie would have em. I'm up for a bird house show down
