The Tree Climbing Monkey's Bum

Bird box design

In the UK this is the ideal week to put out a bird nesting box. As these are easily available already, mostly in the form of small boxes with a dark interior, a sloping roof and an entrance hole, the opportunity for greater invention is wide open.

Last year my proposal was for: 10 Sparrows That Live In The Moon. This year I present: The Tree Climbing Monkey's Bum.

This idea takes the form of a small replica monkey, who's flexible arms can be wrapped around a tree branch, or made to cling unto a suitable spot on a building or other structure.

The birds of course nest inside the monkey, using its curved tail as a perch, and accessing their new home by flying in and out of the hole in its bum.

note - can also be placed on a more accessible pole and used to keep bees

       It would make a very cool birdbox, although I'm a little unsure of the long-term ramifications of training birds to fly up arses.

       Heh-heh, you said "ramifications."

       We don't have any indigenous monkeys in UK, so not a problem here.

       Try tuning in to the BBC Parliament channel. There's about 650 of the buggers on show, in their monkey house.

       I need an illustration.   

       [+] Well done, as always.

       (+), but only if it flings birds at you as you walk by it.   

       //We don't have any indigenous monkeys in UK, so not a problem here//
Maybe not, but judging by the number of green ring-necked parakeets in my garden, it is only a matter of time.
