I was looking for a cool little birdhouse to hang in the tree outside my office. As the beautiful days of summer approach, it would give me something else to watch as I stare out the window all day instead of getting any work done. I found a really unique one called The Cork Birdhouse. Yes, it's made from my favorite resource material, cork (if there's a flood, it will float. lol), and is designed primarily for smaller birds such as sparrows. This birdhouse also protects the smaller birds from predators and evil food-snatching squirrels since it doesn't have a perch. It will be nice to have a little company around the office, but the birds better keep the noise level to a minimum.
I'm still debating on whether or not to install the super cool Cypress Bat House to invite an army of bats to help fight those nasty summer mosquitoes as well.
