5"X7" Oil on board

As I have mentioned before I am slowly repainting the exterior of my very old clapboard house. This entails a great deal of scraping and preparing. I finally worked my way around to the west wall this year but while in the process of scraping I came the the sorry conclusion that there isn't a board worth saving. We decided that we would re-side that section and this process was supposed to start next week. Unfortunately today we became aware of a slight problem. The ancient nesting box fastened to that side of the house, which was there when we moved in and has been empty for the four years since, seems to be occupied!
