For the Birds


My dad used to say this a lot; "that's for the birds!"  He said it when something seemed ridiculous or silly. (He'd really wear himself out saying it these days, wouldn't he?)  But, this tree I spotted over the weekend really is for the birds with a whole set of ramshackle bird houses lurking in its branches.

Wonderful... a resort FOR THE BIRDS. ;)

It's such a funny expression, isn't it? Like something made for birds is a BAD thing.

It's getting a wee bit crowded up there Sharon.. the population explosion is spreading upwards πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

The birds probably think those are pretty nice places to raise a family.

I dunno what to think. We've got a couple of small bird houses but have yet to see any birds use them...instead they build their nests in our bushes so they are more hidden which is possibly a bit safer. Looks like they could use a little TLC.

My sister likes rustic birdhouses. Whenever I am at a loss for a birthday present for her, I just get another birdhouse like these.

I wonder if they actually are in usable. Perhaps they are just considered to be on the wrong side of the tree for your haughty Phoenix birds.
