Artist's Description

I just love Rosella’s and every year they try to nest in this birdhouse, this bit of real estate gets many inspections but unfortunately the tenants are too fat for the doorway.

I did one year, get hubby up on a ladder with a jigsaw to widen one of the holes to see if they would nest there. I felt really bad that I had built an ornamental birdhouse and thought I could fix the problem.

Unfortunately after we altered the hole, they didn’t like that nest so for months and months they would go to the other holes and see if they could squeeze in them.

Totally frustrated that I had ruined my birdhouse which took over 30 hours to build, I glued the moulding back over the hole and lucky it hid the cutout.

Funny thing after it was fixed, the Rosella’s promptly went back to their favourite hole, it’s the one he’s sitting on. The other rooms don’t get a look in.
