More Real Estate for the Squirrels & Birds

Living in a forest.... living in harmony with the little critters. We live in their neighbourhood and we try to be good neighbours. If we cut a tree we plant a tree. We have placed numerous feeders and houses around the yard. Various plantings of shrubs and flowers to attract more creatures. The sounds of birds and squirrels fill the air on most days. Very entertaining to watch them go about their day.

"A wise woman recoginzes when her life is out of balance and summons the courage to act to correct it, she knows the meaning of true generosity, happiness is the reward for a life lived in harmony, with courage and grace" - Suzie Orman

Recycled tin can lids hammered flat, make an original tin roof 
Feeder for birds and squirrels, mom keeps getting squirrels and birds under the glass on hers, so I lowered the glass to about 1/2" from the base. See if that fixes that issue
Feeder Version 2.0 complete
Found a great tree to hang the feeder. Perfect view from my shop windows, chipmunks were eating in it five minutes after we hung it
The chipmunks have been needing their own home in the backyard. There are about 25 chipmunks running around at any given time in the yard
The 4 story tower is really just for show, too low for any bird to move into but we did add floors in case a chipmunk needs a place for a night or two lol
Complete and ready to go outside
There is a stump below that we screwed the house to. The chipmunks beneath the stump in burrows. They zip up and around on the stump at 100 miles an hour. The baby 'munks are the cutest ever

Relax...Respect...Enjoy... Dorri
