Thanks to the coolcleveland blog my difficulties with birdfeeders may be at an end.
"Birdhouses get classy at For the Birds, a display of architect-designed birdhouses @ Cleveland Botanical Garden, held in collaboration w/ the American Institute of Architects (AIA Cleveland). Birdhouse styles range from “shingle/stick” to “prairie & beyond” to “modernism” to “post-war suburbia.” Birdhouses will be displayed throughout the Garden’s 10 acres."
First thing in the morning- make that midmorning - I'm off to the bank to see if some sub-prime mortgages are available for birdhouses. I've got "modernism" in mind. No old birds for me.
