# 90 Book It!!

If you build it they will come....

I am very pleased to announce that my first book is now available.
Our mission is to help you provide safe accessible housing for birds and other wildlife.
  Whether you are building or buying a birdhouse, Woodcrafting for Birds and Wildlife, provides the most detailed information on a safe home environment.  The continuing loss of habitat has created a nesting bird crisis including other wildlife.  If you are serious about helping nature, birds and wildlife - this book is for you.
We believe there is not another book on the market that provides as much expert research and helpful details as found in the Woodcrafting for Birds and Wildlife.
        Our book includes breeding and nesting information for over 40 species of birds and wildlife.
         All of these species will nest in man made structures.
·         This book gives house placement recommendations so you will achieve maximum occupancy rates in the homes you provide.
        This book has been written with the best interest of the birds and wildlife in mind.
         No fancy hard to follow plans, just solid, safe, and practical information.
         A beautiful full color photo section is included to aid your bird and wildlife identification.
         Our 28 detailed construction plans cover the specifics on which house plan works best for each species.  Easy to follow construction plans will make a great family project.

The joy and excitement of watching a new family grow in shelter you provided is priceless.  The birds and wildlife will thank you in their own special way, by showing off their new families.

You can call or email me if you would like a copy and I will get it to you.
$18.50 each

Woodcrafting for Birds and Wildlife is the completion of the efforts of many people. My sincere thanks to all of you who have helped to make this book a reality.

With this book you will learn how to create a backyard outdoor environment that will attract birds and provide them with a safe nesting option.

Mathew 6 :25-26
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

# 89 Think Spring!

Here in Texas we have had a relatively warm far. They say if you don't like the weather here just wait a few minutes. With the warm weather the birds have been active.
 Photography has been a passion of mine for quite a few years and the more I "shoot" the more I enjoy it. As I was getting ready for work one morning last week I spied these eastern bluebirds in the back yard checking out the free housing. With my camera sitting on  my desk I headed out the back door on a dead run! I did manage a few good shots in the process. Like a lot of things in life when you see an opportunity you had better grab at it. Photography is like that. The moment passes, the smile or giggle is gone, the hug or kiss lasts but a moment. The bird flies away or the deer runs off. Enjoy the moment and take it in. Fisherman say you never step in the same river twice, things are always moving. The bluebird only sits on the house for a few seconds.
You and I are her for such a short time. Enjoy the small things life!

 Genesis 3-19
19 By the sweat of your brow
    you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
    and to dust you will return.”
