Mrs. Jones gave our family this colorful, handmade birdhouse. Randy nailed it to a tree right near our picture window on Saturday afternoon. So far, it remains empty. It should be fun to watch a brood of baby birds hatch and learn to fly.
Too bad cardinals, blue jays, and robins don't build their nests in birdhouses. They're called "open-nesters," which means they build their homes in the trees or brush. I imagine our little birdhouse will be home to a family of happy little song sparrows.
