That's just great!  I like the picture of you standing underneath it - brings the scale of it to reality.

Amazing! I am envious of your neighbors - being able to see all of these beautiful houses and the ecstatic birds that must live in them!

Can you actually keep water in the roof-top pool for the birds?
