life's simple pleasures is enjoying the company of birds. There are so many
varieties of song, color, and behavior that I never see the same thing twice
when I look out of my window. I used to settle for just feeding the birds, but
this year I decided to be a better host by building a home for some of my
feathered friends. The house I built is intended to be a home for chickadees,
but the plan includes a chart for dimensions of houses friendly to other
species of birds, as well.
The Cottage Birdhouse was originally featured in Workbench Volume 54,
WHAT YOU GET.
The Cottage Birdhouse plan is a
five-page, 332K ".pdf" file. It has step-by-step instructions, over a
