Last month we posted a photo of a bird checking out a local birdhouse, courtesy of edhat reader and human neighbor Dave.

We held a caption contest for edhatters to decide on the "best" caption. Of course, it had something to do with Santa Barbara housing costs.

Edhat reader Dave is back with an update on the birdhouse and its new tenants.

"They bought the house!  Now building their nest.  Another family soon to be in the hood!" said Dave.

He sent the above photo which shows the new neighbor holding some straw in its mouth, ready to make their home cozy.

We hope the birds didn't have to pay over asking for their new home, but welcome to the neighborhood.

Public Service Announcement re: Birdhouses w/ perches: "Should you put a perch on a birdhouse?
Use natural, unpainted wood instead and stain the outside with a natural wood preservative such as linseed oil. → Stay away from any birdhouse with a perch. Birds don't need them and they only make it easier for predators or unwanted birds to get in." (
