This is an old book case that was being thrown out and I had an idea to turn this book case into a nest box. There will be 10 nesting boxes with hardware cloth in front of one half of each box and a door that closes and we a landing board when open. I will be able to close each couple up at night or other times as needed for short term. Each box will have enough room for food and water. This will be especially handy when I want to do a thorough cleaning.
Isn't it just amazing what can be done with what others leave at the side of the road?!

That's

The old adage, one man's trash is another mans treasure certainly worked for you and the pijjies.

I know. It's so true. I could tell you stories about the things I have found that people have thought of as junk! Charis that'll be great. And so much easier and better! We need pics when it's finished.

Thank you Cindy, Jay and Teresa.
It would be fun to see what other interesting pigeon things we can come up with from reclaimed treasures.

They like it! Ellie and 15 have already chosen a box. Oz has checked it out too.
All the others were investigating when I came inside. They are so cute.

New 'furniture' is always a hit with the pijjies. YESS!!
I'm sure they will all have an 'apartment' picked out soon. Happy Dance

Oh Charis, it's cute. I love it! That couple looks so good in their box. They'll like having a cozy little nook to sleep in. They just have to get used to the idea of change. Then they'll love it. It's really cute.
