Cape May Cottage Bird House

Home Bazaar

Offer your local feathered friends a remarkable vacation home with this Home Bazaar Yellow Cape May Cottage Bird House. Inspired by the lovely houses in one of the United States' oldest birdwatching havens, this home will surely invite birds to your own garden haven. The creamy yellow hue of the roost adds a fresh, coastal feel to it, enhanced by the pine shingles on the roof and white trim around the faux door, windows, and porch railing. Imitation balcony windows on either side of the home beneath the gabled roof bring even more architecture and excitement to the piece. A 1.25" diameter entrance sits in the front gable, creating the appearance of dual levels. This design forms a deep, 5" x 6" interior, helping birds stay safe and out of the elements. Two drainage holes on the base help nests remain dry while a 0.25" wide ventilation gap on the back regulates the internal temperature. A flat rear panel removes easily for cleaning and maintenance, and the unpainted interior is safe for birds. A mesh ladder beneath the entrance hole assists fledglings in reaching it when time to fly. Crafted from kiln-dried hardwood, this getaway will look great in any garden. Place the item on a flat surface, indoors or out, or use a mounting bracket (not included) on the base to attach it to a post or pole. Introduce to your backyard birds a safe getaway with seaside appeal with the Yellow Cape May Cottage Bird House.

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 wish to preserve the finish (paint) on this home, 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 outdoors, the product will weather and require refinishing.
