birdhouse for a family

we put this birdhouse up on the other back corner of the awning from the bird feeder. at first we didn't know what to do. do you advertise a new birdhouse? and how? are the rates acceptable? we thought it had remained empty, but we startd seeing some twigs poking out, but we never heard anything. i went to move it one day for the housewarming party and a small finch flew out. turns out it's been occupied. by now the eggs have hatched and the birds are growing. we haven't seen them try and leave yet, but i hope to see that soon.

as beth puts it, we provided low cost afforable housing in ann arbor, a high price market. it's near food, trees, and many natural predators (the number of cats in the neighborhood is large and seems to be growing).
