Birds In Man Made Habitat in Spring [ PLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE ENTERING ! ]

Challenge #68 in the The Company Of Animals series. Hosted by Patchandcrew.
Challenge has finished
The series now looks at humans and animals sharing our world. For this challenge, show one or more bird in or on a MAN MADE bird habitat, ie bird table, bird box, bird bath etc, any structure which through design, or incidental result, is helping birds by providing a place for food or water or shelter. *Capture date is relevant in respect of being Spring months so this over rides the No Restrictions rule below as Spring Months is not a tickable dpr option* [ A duel version of the seasons set will be run in which entrants can try to repeat/better their shots and show comparison, more details to come later on in the Challenges Forum ;) ] If unsure of any of the rules please do ask via pm. DQs of non-eligible entries will be done at the close of submissions.
