Three Little Birds, Pitch By My Doorstep

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Or at least we hope they will.

As part of our recent exterior beautification project (ahem, yardwork), we decided that since Jaxon is in LOVE with birds of all sorts, we'd best provide some sort of shelter for them to woo them to hang out at Casa Walkush.

So, we got to work putting up some bird houses. This one is the extra schmancy birdie mansion with room for not one but TWO nests:


And these two colorful beauties hang in the tree next to the birdie mansion:


What bird could resist living in a tree that blooms this beautifully? (Hopefully not too many of them for Jaxon's sake.)


To up the ante, I decided to put together this quick little DIY project that I saw on Pinterest. The previous homeowners left us with a suet feeder (which this vegetarian thinks is gross), so I gathered up all of my yarn scraps from my many crochet projects, stuffed them into the suet feeder, and fashioned a hook from a clothes hanger to hang it from the tree. 

The birds can have easy access to use the scraps to build their nests. You can see that they've already depleted some of the stash. Crocheters and knitters take heed: this is stash busting at its finest!


So, our little birdie oasis is complete.

"Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:")

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

Rise up this mornin',

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don't worry!"
Singin': "Don't worry about a thing" - I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Singin': "Don't worry about a thing,

'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!
