One for the Birds

I collect bird houses.   Bet you didn't know that. 

Well, I'm not obsessed about it, I just like to pick them up every once in a while.   Actually I haven't picked up a new bird house in quite some time.  I think all of them I've collected so far were from my time in Wisconsin.   I don't remember if any I have were recent acquires since moving back to NC.

My collection is small.   Only a handful.   And they are strictly decorations only.   Maybe when we get settled I might branch out and get some useful houses for outdoors.

I suppose it all started with my grandfather, Pop.  Pop used to raise birdies a long, long time ago.   And he collected small scale bird houses.  I remember painting one for him before he passed.   And he and Gram have them displayed along their all-season room's ceiling.

So here's my little collection.  I look forward to adding to my collection again soon.
