- Challenges we faced while building/testing our birdhouse is that we did not get a bird in our house over the course of four days that it was outside
The habitat performed well under wind and rain circumstances up in a tree. It was stable on the branch and was able to withstand water well.

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.
