This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will make a bird house for a specific species of bird.  

Here's a nice youtube video of making an Eastern Bluebird house:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - it must be designed for a specific species of bird
 - natural wood and steel/wood fasteners (no glue, plywood, stain, paint)
 - must be able to open for cleaning

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - post a pic of the bird house under construction
 - post a pic of your finished bird house in its final mounted location
 - say what bird species it is designed for, how this design is a good match for that bird, and why you would like more of that bird in this area

Here’s my in progress bird house. It’s made from a cedar log. I cut the sides off and then screwed them back together. I still need to get the proper hole saw.
