I would love to do this one day when I am out of the pregnancy, baby, toddler mode :) My neighbors down the street have this in their backyard through state of Illinois. Can't wait to see and hear about all the progress. Go SQ!!!

We have done this here in New York, where we maintain an array of bird baths, squirrel nest boxes in the trees and, of course, ever present feeders all over! We have added trees of various types to the property, maintain a huge trumpet vine and, in general, just love having our wild neighbors living in harmony with us (especially the squirrels). Good going! Let's display our signs proudly!
