    not sure why you're worried about the 'birds having somewhere to get up onto

    looks like you have it ventilated pretty well, I wouldn't worry about another door. The one thing I would worry about is not having the siding panel door framed all the way to the edges, it WILL warp sooner rather than later. I'd frame around the outside of it, then you should be able to straighten your hinges.

    Everything still needs to be trimmed. I am still working on it when I can. Currently 8" of snow covering everything.

    The reason I am worried about them getting on the window when it is opened is that one thing I have learned from the previous birds I have experience with is that if they can stand there they will and they will poop on it. I don't want them pooping on the siding
