Adorable examples. My grandfather (who worked for Stark County Ohio custom home builders) used to build birdhouses from scrap wood, and my mother would paint them. The back yard was always filled with birdhouses and birds of all kinds. The lawn was patterned in different types of grass due to all the bird seed that was scattered, but it was worth it. It's especially fun to learn what types of seed attract what breeds of bird. Goldfinches were our most prized and sought after breed - they love thistle. The hardest part was trying to keep the squirrels away from the feed.
