Birdhouses Two

Birdhouses Two, by Carl Bender

Second Floor Periodical Area

It all started with an old weathered board.  When Carl Bender retired from his medical practice as an obstetrician-gynecologist, he found a new and rewarding focus for his expanded free time.  He forages at flea markets, garage sales and antique shops for wood surfaces and toys, tools, household and industrial items.  Then the artistry begins as he puts them together to create a whimsical identity for each birdhouse.  And, yes, the birds in his yard do use them.
