Ray Bird’s birdhouses


Ray Bird retired from driving trucks in 2000. Instead of “sitting in a chair, waiting to die,” he decided to make a birdhouse. He’s spent “about 60 hours a week” doing that since. One of his favorite stories relates to the “hotel” he built and placed on his fence. Within a few weeks, the birdhouse was filled with pine cones. After having to take it down for repairs once, the hotel was again filled up with more pine cones. For the video go to love.sltrib.com.

  1. I had a Son that made me a bird house and put it on a post in my back yard. He has died and the birdhouse he made has almost died also. I saw where you made them and was wondering if I could get you to make me one. Your reply would be appreciated. Sincerely

  2. I am in love with these and would love to purchase one for my Father for Father’s Day. Is there a shop where he sells them or contact information to be able to purchase one?
