We have four apartments for rent in or near the St. Francis Garden. Yesterday a little chickadee was taking advantage of the nice weather and was out doing some apartment hunting.

I think we’re going to have a new tenant soon.

    1. I think it’s too soon to say. She was still shopping around. Last year we had chickadees in the Nature Lover’s Retreat. Hopefully we will again. I need to get my bird cam on too, if I can figure out how to make it work right.

  1. I love them all! I just got my little suet holder filled with ribbons and yarn and dryer lint and need to find a place to hang it. Not sure if there will be any takers but at least it is worth a try, right??? Let us know who ends up renting from you. 🙂

    1. I was thinking about looking up your blog post about that. I filled a hanging pot with some of the garden refuse. I didn’t want to clean it all up and not leave anything for the birds to use. Do you have to use all natural materials or does it matter?

      1. I don’t think you have to use all natural materials—I mean look at some of the trash that birds find to use in their nests!!! I put mine out today in a spruce tree and we will see. I had yarn and ribbons, string and dryer fluff—I am not going to hold my breath. Every time I do something that I think is wonderful the recipients don’t always see it that way… this case I am sure the birds will think it is silly!!! But I tried!!! The hanging pot idea is great!! I am sure they love it!

    1. Any time. They’re all vacant right now. But if they don’t suit your purpose, we do have a guest room or two in the house you could crash in for a night or two. 🙂

    1. I don’t know for sure, but I think it was the wife who was looking. The husband appeared to be perching around on branches nearby, probably getting tired of waiting for her.
