Boxes for the birds

My favorite bird is the mourning dove.  Their sound is the most pleasant of any bird out there.

I read today its in decline.  To help it I will build a cone for easy nesting.

  • 12″ x 12″ Hardware cloth
  • Tin Snips


Cut a circle from the hardware cloth.  Measure a 2.5″ wide pie piece and cut out.  This will allow you to pull the edges together to form a cone.  Secure the edges with wire.  Attach to the crotch of a tree limb with wire or staples.


I will post my picture once I have it up.
