Backyard Cottage Bird House, White

Home Bazaar

Share your outdoors with friendly avian neighbors by placing the Home Bazaar Backyard Cottage Bird House, White in your bird garden. The familiar architectural elements create a realistic shelter, while the white color brings a bright hint to your yard. The tall shape mimics a two story house, while the pitched roof, wraparound porch, and faux door and windows all evoke elements seen on homes throughout neighborhoods. Colorful fabric flowers in two window boxes and a hanging basket bring even more style to the piece, and wooden shingles on the roof contrast the white finish. A 1.25" diameter entry sits near the top of the home, protected by the overhang from the roof and a dormer. The generous interior offers songbirds a wonderful roosting spot, and this tall design helps the nesting area stay cool. A drainage hole on the base allows any captured water to escape the unit, and the back panel removes easily for nest checks. Screening beneath the entry forms a ladder, allowing fledglings to reach it when ready to exit. This home's wooden construction creates a hardy piece, and the flat base may be pole or post mounted with a mounting bracket (not included). Use the hanging tab on the back of the item to attach it to a tree, fence, or wall with just a screw for more display options. Start an avian neighborhood in your yard with this White Backyard Bird Cottage.

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. You should expect that once left outside, the home will weather and require refinishing.
