What a beautiful birdhouse this is! It's easy to see why Boxelders with these markings are referred to as Flame Boxelder. This is just a lovely birdhouse, with an overall tall shape, a copper hook for hanging, and wonderful markings.Please note that strong sunlight will make the red fade on boxelder. These are best kept as indoor art or in a outdoor spot with all-day shade.
This would make a great gift for someone really special. (That includes you!)
13.25" h x 8.5" diameter
Comes with a perch and care instructions.
Pair it with one of our copper hooks to make it really stand out!
~ 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 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.
