Building a traditional Basque style bird house – La Fabrique DIY

Shrinking this home in southwestern France is for the birds: From cutting the wood pieces, to constructing and painting it, a traditional Baserri style house in the Basque region of France is recreated from scratch as a back yard birdhouse. The project is by Paris-based La Fabrique DIY, led by Claire Protin and Lucas Berbesson, who are transforming their habitual screen time into time learning how to make things with their hands.

Plus, more back yard birds: 6pm Feeding the Kookaburra, Hummingbird hatchlings in their nest with mother Rosie, and how do cliff swallows build their mud pellet nests?
