Six cool birdhouses for a cold day

Adorable multicoloured green roof seen at Joy Creek Nursery near Portland

Winter 2015 is for the birds – and so are these nifty birdhouses. That’s just about all I have to say on this record-setting-cold-streak, Almost-Wordless Wednesday. Except: Enjoy!

Give your fine feathered friends the licence to move in. This great recycle even looks like the roof is InsulBrick – a good grippy texture for itinerant mosses. Seen at Bella Madrone near Portland OR.
Charming Quebecois-style red roof in a Quebec garden. Strangely, it reminds me of a cartoon character. Maybe Pogo.
(Do you see faces in everything, too? It’s called pareidolia.)
Rather swish abode for an avian family in Pittsburgh PA
This zigzag bird condo in an east Toronto garden looks like something from Dr. Seuss. I think I like it, Sam I Am.
Ceramic birdhouses by Kennedy Creek Pottery were spied at Joy Creek. The green one followed me home.


  1. Helen girl I am a birdhouse fan but never thought about creating a "green" roof on one .. now that has really caught my attention ! I'm thinking some of my smaller sedums would be perfect !
    They are all gorgeous … I wonder what it is that makes us "gaga" over these tiny perfections?
    Now I will be obsessed with them ! haha
    PS .. congrats on your acquisition girl !
