Cottage Hanging Birdhouse
Like a quaint country cottage, this beautiful birdhouse gives wild birds a place to call home. Topped with western red cedar shingles and decorated with a pastel bouquet design and matching roof line, this fully functional, standard nesting box can be fixed to a fence post with its pre-installed key-hole hardware. Perfect for birthdays, housewarmings or any occasion that celebrates your favorite bird lover.
When birds migrate home in the spring, the mother birds look for a secure home that is fixed to a post, tree, fence or the side of a house for which to make a nest.
Then, the mother birds will lay their eggs and protect their nest until the eggs hatch. They will stay and feed and care for their young until they are able to make their own way out in the world. At that point, the mother birds will abandon the house.
The owner of the birdhouse should clean out the old nest, via the removable back wall, so that the birds can return the following season to an available house.
Our birdhouses feature:
This birdhouse will attract all types of wild birds, but is designed for house wrens.
We do not use any chemicals or sealants that could harm wildlife. However, if 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. All of our products will weather over time but will continue to be fully functional.
