  • Very nice habitat. I wouldn’t be discouraged that the birds haven’t appeared yet. Sometimes it takes a little while for them to acclimate to a new place. It’s good that you have a place for them to hide inside as small birds are prey for hawks and other birds of prey that are on the lookout for a quick snack.

  • Good choice of colors. The design of the door is very neat and creative!

  • Nice work using the wood from trees as your renewable energy as stated in your video. This is a really nicely designed bird house.

  • You did an amazing job! Good luck!

  • I like the way you textured the wood, and made sure it is non-toxic, I bet it tastes nice for the bird.
