I've got a mini high the other day from spotting a birds nest complete with adorable baby birds chirping for food. Seriously seriously cute. The problem was, to get a good look at them I had to stand precariously on a wobbly lawn chair and try to peak up under the eaves of a my grandmother's portico. Not easy bird gawking. You know what DOES make for easy bird gawking? Window view birdhouses! You can attach them to one of your windows and watch the nesting in action!
You could easily make one of these OR modify the one you purchase to make them more customized. Check out this window birdhouse mod-ing action:
- Window film (you can see out but the Birds can't see in).
- Removed the suction cups and used heavy-duty velcro strips for better stability, privacy, and insulation.
- Drilled a 1/4 inch hole, and inserted a stick for a custom perch.
- They've also attached a window bird feeder.
I've actually ordered both of these things — window bird house AND bird feeder. I can't wait to start spying on more adorable bird action right from my living room — no precarious lawn chair action necessary!
