Oil Jug Birdhouse Mounts On Fencepost
While on a summer drive with my family near Cherhill, Alta., a section of fence caught my eye. It was adorned with a variety of “oil jug birdhouses”. Each post had a different style and color of oil jug mounted on top. Whoever placed them there had cut a hole in each one (leaving a flap bent upward at the top) for the birds to get inside. I could see nesting material inside so I knew they were being used.
  The landowner cut the bottoms out of the jugs and slipped the jug down over the top of the post. He used the 4 flaps cut into the bottom of each jug to nail it in place.
