The bird house stayed with my parents until we moved into our new house. Then we brought it home and stashed it in the garage. It still needed an eye hook and some chain, but I had every intention of hanging it in the spring of 2010.
Time passed and the bird house collected dust in the garage. We remembered it this year, but it was already April. I figured we'd hang it even though all of the birds surely had homes already.

Five seconds passed. Right before our very eyes, Mr. and Mrs. Bird went one by one into the house. Within minutes they decided to stay. We watched them all morning as they brought bits of grass to stuff inside.
Mr. Bird is probably quite insufferable right about now. You just know that his wife has been telling him for weeks that they needed a house. Then he just stumbles into a new construction in a good neighborhood, his procrastination rewarded.
I feel for her. I hate when that happens, but I'm glad something is living in our house. Perhaps Julia really does control the universe.
