Mary on the other hand birds don't really care if it isn't perfect so no need to worry most likely..... :-)

Mary my gourds are pretty thick which makes it easier...the thinner and dryer the gourd the easier they are to crack.  Fortunately for me my husband has round hole drills in different sizes and I let him to the honor of drilling the holes.

Beth, how did you make the entry hole in your birdhouse gourd?  Mine looks awful... and the gourd is very dry... can I still fix it?

Cindy thanks for the name of the glue.  I am always looking for glue that will withstand the our of doors. I really like the bird cage picture.

Thats a great idea Beth I think I'll hang it in the Apple tree today.... and put a saucer in it.... great thinking... I have two so I can still decorate one with flowers.
