The birdhouse in the upper woodland garden has been in need of renovation for more than a year. The paint was faded and chipping away, and, even worse, a squirrel had eaten away at the hole until the house offered little protection to nestlings. I liked the charm of the old birdhouse and did not want to just chuck it. So I was happy when I saw a predator guard online that would cover the damaged edges of the hole. An easy installation of the new predator guard and a quick paint job was all it took to restore the birdhouse to usefulness:
Hopefully, a new generation of birds will soon find a safe home in the newly refurbished house.
