    Just saw this on Facebook and wanted to share. It's so cute, isn't it? Even if you didn't have that exact entertainment unit, you could probably come up with an idea of your own.

    You can put a dowl stick in the it for the birds to rest on. You would have to drill thtough the back but, if you are afraid of moisture you can put some clear calk on it. Going to get my granson's to help me on a couple of them.
