We've all worked with a few buyers who might have us believe that the needs in selecting the right house are complex and many. It isn't the "needs" that are complex but the "wants" that can make the choice so difficult.
Truly? Our needs, like those of the animal kingdom are very, very simple. Security. We all want to feel secure and safe from the weather elements and any predators who might harm us.
The animal kingdom probably are able to differentiate their needs from their wants...in fact, their wants are probably satisfied by simpfinding that their needs have been met. Birds are quite clever when finding a home to protect themselves from the weather and their hunters but have you ever wondered about what must be nothing short of amazement when they find turnkey houses just waiting for them? These gourds are on the original smokehouse of the Tunnel Mountain Road farmhouse property. If a couple of birds found these houses, do you think they'd be analyzing how close the houses are to their neighbors? Would they listen for traffic noise? Would they wonder about granite counter tops and hardwood floors? Would they enter the dwelling and collapse with horror that the walls might need to be painted to suit their aesthetic pleasure?
No, I don't think so. I think they'd think that the gourds seem far enough off the ground to protect them from the most common predators and they'd rejoice that their groceries and water was just a short flight away.
Of course, they might also scratch their feathered heads and wonder if some awesome Bird God provided these dwellings for them. I hope they would be thankful, but then...like some house buyers, who knows what a bird might think?
