We've decided to all make at least one birdhouse for the "Clay Garden" show. Here's mine... I'm not too crazy about it, but it's my first try. I wanted it to be a functional and healthy home for baby birds: there are vent holes in the back and at the sides, drain holes in the floor, and that big cork will plug the bottom (for easy end-of-the-season cleaning). I've read that ceramic birdhouses should be glazed a light color so they don't get too hot. Please pass the Mocha Shino.
