When birds migrate home in the Spring, the Mothers look for a secure house that it fixed to a post, tree, fence or the side of a house. Once they find a safe dwelling, they build a nest.
When completed, the Mother will lay her eggs and protect the nest until the eggs hatch. The mother will feed and care for the young nestlings until they are strong enough to make their way out into the real world. Eventually, the mothers will abandon the house.
The owner should clean out the old nest (back wall is easily removable) so that the birds can return the following season to an empty and available house.
Our birdhouses feature:
removable back walls for easy cleaning
1 ¼"D hole opening designed to accommodate common cavity dwellers such as Wrens, Finches, Chickadees, Nuthatches and Titmice.
This birdhouse will attract all types of wild birds.
We have not used any chemicals or sealants that could be harmful to wildlife. Should you wish to preserve the finish of your birdhouse, you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use and UV rated so that it will not discolor the paint. With time, all of our products that are left outdoors will need to be refinished. The pine shingles will darken over time, and the piece will take on a weathered and distressed look, but it will continue to be fully functional.
