Bird houses of extraordinary artistic quality

At the nearby farmer’s market in the Hudson Valley a local artist occasionally sells bird houses that he makes out of old materials, and they took our breath away.

The artistry is extraordinary and yet there they all are, on a table, no big deal.


The front of each one has a kind of scene — sometimes a landscape with foreground and background, a cliff and light house in one, etc etc.

Yes, we bought one.
