This is a lovely, elegant, Black Walnut and Ambrosia Maple birdhouse with distinctive markings, suitable for many of the smaller, cavity dwelling songbirds. The body has striking highly figured grain. It comes with a copper hook for hanging. Our birdhouses make wonderful gifts for nature lovers, or will shine in your garden.
11.5"high x 9" diameter
~ Birds are very sensitive to chemicals in their environment. We use only nontoxic finishes on our birdhouses.
~ Birdhouses will weather when used outside. Some cracking will likely occur-this is normal & provides needed ventilation for the nest. We recommend a semi-annual application of pure Tung oil on the roof & body to keep it looking it’s best. We also recommend that they be installed under an overhang or similar sheltered spot. It is also suggested that they be taken down & stored over the Winter-they will last longer that way. (If used as a delightful indoor decorating piece, they need only a semi-annual Tung oil application & will give years of enjoyment)
~ The Birdhouses are “bird ready” & have panel nails holding the lid to the body. These are easily removed for yearly cleaning. We recommend dusting the interior with diatomaceous earth once a year.
~ Many small birds will (& have!) used our birdhouses to make nests. These include Wrens, Nuthatches, Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse & other small birds.
