This is my new bird house. Again, my boyfriend put it together and I painted it. We put it on the balcony fence, where I can always see it from the kitchen.
There is a little sad story behind the making of this bird house. The past summer was very hot. And every time me and my boyfriend drove home from work, we were driving with our car windows down. One lovely afternoon three little sparrow birds flew inches above our car, while we were driving it and one little fellow got sucked in the car through my open window. He crashed directly into my right shoulder and fell on the back seats… When we stopped the car, we found the little sparrow dead. The speed of our crash was too much for him.
We felt bad. After all it was us invading their space. So as we buried him in the woods we swore to build another bird house this winter, which will be always rich with bird seeds. And so we did.
