9/10th of the law

My husband put this bird house up years ago. We've had faithful tenants ever since--sparrows can be found in the house through the winter and warm months.

We are doing a lot of restoration work on our property and I know that we will have to replace the bird house soon but I hate to as well.  I love the antics of the sparrows.  We can have as many as two or three perched on the roof of the house; they appear to be vying to get in the house.  One plucky one always sits there (not unlike one of our dogs guarding a toy) and won't leave the house until the "coast is clear".

Clearly possession is 9/10ths of the law in the ornithology world too!
Have a great day!

HAHA the birdy 9/10ths rule - too cute! I think the sparrows would prefer their old house to a fancy new one - or perhaps - a new one in *addition* to their comfy old home? ;)
