I posted earlier about the squirrel attacking my felt bird house. I took the bird house down and finally got around to repairing it. This is what was left of the hanging strap. It was double thickness felt made around a resist and you can see how the squirrel had almost chewed through completely.
I cut off the strap and then sewed a very small loop back to the bird house. Then I hung it back up on a metal hook. It's been up for several days now and it doesn't appear to have been attacked again. Hopefully, it will make it through the winter. I have my doubts that any birds will nest in these but I thought I would give them a try and see what happens. I'll let you know if any birds take up residence.
