This is a charming Red Elm acorn-shaped birdhouse that has beautifully grained wood with a sweet acorn finial on the bottom of the house. It is suitable as a chickadee or wren house. Made from artist-gathered fallen trees. This is a house that's just lovely from every angle! The top is held by 2 pins and comes off for easy cleaning. It is finished with pure Tung oil.
Size: 10.5"H x 6.75” diameter
This makes a great Birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift.
All houses come with a removable perch and care instructions. (See below)
~ 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.
