|The hole is too big, and prey can get the sweet little birds.Time for a new bird house.|
|Pretty little nest|
I had no idea how to preserve a bird nest, so I did a little research. I gently shook the nest to remove loose debris.Instead of using a pesticide that was recommended, I used the microwave. I kill the bugs in Spanish Moss the same way. I figured it couldn't hurt.I set the microwave for 10 seconds. Wow, little critters were running for their lives! I did this at 10 second increments, for 90 seconds.
I gently remolded the nest, and gave it 3 coats of the acrylic spray.
|I wanted to keep it very neutral in color.|
|I added some palm leaves that I got from the yard to add some height This is the finished product..What do you think?|
