Meet N.L. Jones, Dallas's Birdhouse Man


A Friend of Unfair Park directs our attention this morning to this short film by Chris Wiegand about N.L. Jones, who, for the last 40 years, has worked at multiple Best of Dallas-winner Orr-Reed Wrecking. The salvage yard is where folks go to turn trash into treasure -- none more so, perhaps, than Reed for reasons made evident in this loving look at one man's passion for birdhouses.
