Birdhouse Walkway

Unique Birdhouse DesignAn avid animal lover and field naturalist, Yvonne has witnessed an abundance of animal and bird wildlife along her daily walks. She aims for a good hour each day – both for the vital exercise and the inspiration ‘out in nature’ can bring her. Often when someone visits – she is thrilled to lead them through her 1/2 hour Birdhouse Walkway stroll on her land (with 70 handmade houses) or accompany her along a favourite view trail. One in particular is an easy 20 minute jaunt to see Alberta’s oldest living tree – a Limber Pine – cored at approx 1700 years old!

Below are just a few examples of over 70 handmade houses that dot the pathway of the “Woodland Walkway of Unusual Birdhouses.”

Woodland Walkway of Unusual Birdhouses

Mountain Chickadee: This little cousin of the urban chickadee is nesting in this house (The Picket Post) on my trail of unusual birdhouses. It is a species that lives in woodland areas, has the distinctive white bar head markings, and their sound is often described as a “Black Capped Chickadee with a cold.”
