Work on the Bird Blind at Fun and Sun RV Resort has begun

08 Mar

The Bird Blind will provide a location for photographers to sit or stand and take pictures of birds without scaring the birds away.  It is not a large structure and will have room for two photographers/observers.

The wood and post supports for the Bird Blind arrived on Wednesday last week.  Arrangements were made with the a few of the park work-campers to meet with us Friday morning to hammer the 4 x 4 post supports into the ground.  I had concerns about this effort as I have worked with supports of this kind before.  The supports go down about 2 1/2 feet into the ground.  It took muscle and a sledge hammer to drive them down.  There are six supports.

The 4 x 4 post fits into the post support.  The support is pounded into the ground until just the "cup" portion of the support is about the ground.

For the most part the supports went down into the ground with no major issues.  And within a couple of hours, that part of the work was complete.  Friday afternoon, my neighbor and I started working on the floor of the Bird Blind.  We were able to add some of the 2 x 6 joists.  The rest of the floor will be completed on Monday (if rain does not keep us from the work).

    Pretty neat. However, it looks pretty tiny. In that great birding area, it makes me wonder how many people will be fighting over about getting time to use it. 🙂
