An old dove house

When I was a kid I raised a mourning dove on a bottle. His name was Peepers and eventually went back out into the wild, but while he lived with us, his main home was this bird house.

A couple months ago my parents had to cut down some old bald cypress on the side of their house (the roots had begun to invade their plumbing..). Never one to let anything go to waste, he peeled the bark off and put it on over the old roof. I think it looks awesome and hope to do something similar for my future chicken coop.
