    Old “Tonka” Semi Truck Birdhouse

    The kids found this old Marx metal Shop Rite toy truck in the woods several years ago. They must of found an old dump deep in the woods and started digging. Brought it home and it’s sat on deck ever since. I’m thinking it’s of 60’s maybe early 70’s vintage. Got a nice patina.

    So today I’m messing with the boat and I notice a starling flying in and out of building making a nest apparently.
    Gave me an idea.

    I like it but a starling would have made me think of something else. Yes, your better than me.

    Starlings have no home at my place. They are always flipping robin eggs out of their nests.
    I would close the back door of truck and put a wren size hole in the door.
    Thanks for posting!

    I'll bet bird schitt will corrode the innards of that trailer faster than all the years out in the elements did to the outside.
