Spring fever

The wood pigeons are cooing, crows chasing a buzzard out of their territory and I see some birds already inspecting nest boxes. This can’t be true, of course not, it’s much too early for spring fever. But the temperature today really felt like spring. I even worked in my flower garden to clean up the winter mess.

Another job at this time of the year is to clean the nesting boxes for the birds. If I pull out the old nests it always amazes me to see that most of the nests are built of the hair of my dogs and cat and also of the feathers of my pigeons and chicken. These materials are of course in abundance around our house. I have to replace some of the wooden birdhouses. After a search on the internet I came up with these three nest houses.

I found the white balloon shaped nest box on the blog Design Milk. The house is designed by Renata Manau. I could not find out where they are for sale.

Another nice one. This bird house is by Stef’s hout.

The last one is a super kitsch birdhouse but a very special one I think. It can be purchased on Outside Wishes
