Recently I moved a birdhouse planter, I have had for a number of years, to the corner of our deck railing, so the sun could shine on the Hen's & Chick plant, planted on the side of the birdhouse. 
The little finches have recently returned to our yard. I would see the fliting among the pine trees, then landing on the arms of the patio furniture.
Then one afternoon I saw one little guy checking out the birdhouse planter. 
I kept watching as he tried to get inside through the very little hole.
He kept flying back and forth to the hole, hanging there for a few minutes before leaving only to return in a few minutes.
Eventually he had made the hole big enough to get INSIDE!!!
As the days pasted I watching the coming & going of the little guy, bringing nesting material. Squeezing himself and the pieces for long grass into the little hole, disappearing inside. 
He has been working very hard. 
Now I guess we will have a family of little finches, on our deck railing, for the summer.

You would be shocked if you knew how long it took me to do this. But it was fun.
