Fly away home: Armando DeSantis’s whimsical birdhouses are fashioned from salvaged wood and found objects
For the Birds
Birds won’t be building nests until next spring, but the ones who winter in the Hudson Valley often use birdhouses for shelter. At the home of retired commercial artist Armando DeSantis, they have plenty of choices. DeSantis, who lives in Pine Bush with his wife, Sue, makes whimsical birdhouses out of salvaged wood and found objects, and has many dotted about his property. They’re popular with all kinds of birds, he reports, although their bluebird house has yet to attract an actual bluebird. “This year there’s a tree frog living in it,” Sue says.
One-of-a-kind birdhouses start at $35. 845-744-3626.
