Seaside Blue Nantucket Cottage Bird House

$ 79.95

Reminiscent of an Eastern seashore home, our Seaside Blue Nantucket Cottage Bird House will add a serene cottage feel to your garden and your birds will love it… perhaps even after nesting time occurs, just to get out of the elements. Placing a decorative bird house in your backyard can help you create a theme, while providing songbirds a wonderful shelter. The soft blue color, large, pitched roof, and white trim will add exquisite architecture to your garden and even enhanced with fabric flowers in the window boxes beneath the two faux front windows. A 1.25" diameter entry hole rests on one side of the roost, so birds can easily access the cavity. Its generous size is perfect for an entire avian family, perfectly meeting the needs of your feathered friends. The pitched roof keeps rain out of the home, and its wooden shingles and center dormer further the realistic look. Two holes on the base allow any captured water to drain, while ventilation gaps beneath the roof overhang help the home stay cool for nestlings. A bit of screen beneath the entry hole acts as a ladder, for birds to reach the exit when ready, and the wooden body aids in keeping the internal temperature regulated. The wide, flat base of this unit allows you to mount it to a post or pole using a mounting plate (not included), or you can affix it to a wall or tree with the attached hanging tab. The back panel removes with ease for nest checks or cleaning, helping you keep the home safe for your birds. Every time you see this beautiful birdhouse in your garden it will make you smile.

Note: Climate and the elements will weather this house and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the home's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this item, you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow.
