This is a handsome, distinctive, and very large usable birdhouse. All our wood is gathered from fallen trees, and the one has a small battle scar to prove it! (see image #5)This is sized for wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice and other small, cavity-dwelling songbirds.
Size: 14.5" tall x 12.5" 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.
