COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Homes for birds are part of a unique effort to build homes for families in need throughout the Chattahoochee Valley.

The 2nd annual "A Feathered Affair" event will be held this Thursday and will be put on by the Columbus area Habitat for Humanity. Students from Jordan High School built the birdhouses that were then decorated by local artists and celebrities.

News Leader 9's Jason Dennis designed one for WTVM with chalkboard paint, art and some of our autographs. An online auction just started for more than 40 birdhouses, benefitting Habitat's construction fund.

"We have several people who put the birdhouses outside and some decoration outside," said," said Laura Ann Mann, Habitat Resource Development Manager. "They've also had chickadees who have rested and hatched in the birdhouses. We also have some people who use them as decoration inside their home or on the porch."

"A Feathered Affair" is Thursday night, May 8 from 6 to 9 at the Joseph House Gallery on Broadway in Columbus, with refreshments served, an auctioneer, and a silent auction to help Habitat for Humanity.

Tickets are $10.
