The Red Nest Boxes

The Red Nest Boxes
Two red nest boxes near Söderby in Handen. Shot this from a pedestrian bridge. No idea what type of bird the nest was made for. Most of my flickr photos are organized in sets. I realised that I didn't have a set for birch photos, so that has been fixed now!

Now that's a little odd Steffe, but I like them, their colour AND usefulness!

I love the way the red boxes stand out against the trees. Lovely shot!

JM said...

I agree with Halcyon. Very cool shots.

It would make a cool Christmas card!

What a lovely photo. I do like birches, such graceful trees and they hang on to their leaves here longer than most.

This is a good photo, but curious. It appears to be in a rural setting, so why would someone put bird houses there?

My theory is that the red bird houses are actually trail markers to help people find their way home in the snow. haha. Nevertheless, they look charming in the birch forest.

p.s. At first I wondered who Stefan J. was. After following links I finally realized, "It's Steffe!"

Excellent photos! The birches are beautiful and the squirrel is cute.

Fooled you Jack. It was a rural place a century ago. What you don't see here is the busy road to the left and behind me. Or the big supermarket to the right where thousands of people buy food every day.

Very cute little red boxes!

Birch trees are one of my favorite. I'd guess the red boxes are for cardinals. Maybe?

Lovely shot. Reminds me a bit of the aspens in Colorado.
