Sun Setting On Our Field, by Rainer

Did the rose
Ever open its heart

And give this world
All its

It felt the encouragement of light
Against its

We all remain

Perfectly good, no takers...for four years! What do birds want?

Every bird has certain requirements: size of entry, nest size to fit cavity, height from ground, depth of box to exit, exposure (cover for new fliers if necessary), outside perches, inside cleats and perhaps even in your case, heavy winds (?), preditor access. Explore what type of bird you are trying to lure and go from there -- best of luck! Here's hoping more people follow your lead!!

Thank you, sheila. These are the questions we have as we try to lure animals. As we plant things and put up our climbing structures, etc., we have micro climates within our little yard. This bird house is in a very open spot, very close to where we garden. Are we crazy to think they'd trust us to be within arm's length of their babies? I think so...
