A Home for Sophia

Every spring, for the past several years a house wren has nested in a gourd birdhouse I made and hung near the back fence. I've christened her Sophia Lo-Wren. Cute, no? In hope of luring another wren to the front garden I decided to make another birdhouse. This time I found a classy cigar box that happened to be just the right size for the main body of the house. It is sealed with water seal and the dovetail joints are reinforced with brass escutcheon pins. Nobody has moved in yet, but it's a unique addition to the garden.
