The Birdhouse

Got a new birdhouse today. It has a New England feel to it, with a peaked roof and a porch. The roof is shingled with little shingles smaller than postage stamps. Extra shingles were included.

I like birdhouses. Eydie really likes bird houses, though the next bird that nests in one of our birdhouses will be the first bird to do so. Our little birdhouse village is really quite tragic in its emptiness, as if there had been a terrible war among the birds, and none survived.

It really is quite a fancy birdhouse. The instructions say that if it is to be used outside, we might want to spray it with a polymer coating because if we use it outside it will weather.

But that's only if we use it outside.
