From simple wooden boxes to complex systems made for an entire flock of birds, birdhouses come in all shapes and sizes.
However, one Lancaster resident has turned them into works of art.
John R. “Cornbread” Collins Jr., 75, started building regular birdhouses back in 2004, after retiring as a truck driver in 2001.
Collins said he sold about 1,200 of the birdhouses in one year, mainly on eBay, but also out of the back of his truck.
David Poston, who lives in Rock Hill, saw the birdhouses and ordered 150 of them, Collins said.
