Sorry, this item is out of stock

Bring a hint of sunshine into your garden with the Home Bazaar Yellow Capitola Bird House. Evocative of houses found near in the village of Capitola in California, this vivid and charming unit is sure to delight both you and your backyard birds. A pitched roof with lapped wooden detailing forms the classic frame, and a rectangular platform supports the home easily. White columns, steps, and fencing create a miniature front porch, while the red door here is sure to capture attention. The 1.25" diameter avian entry occupies the top of this front panel, surrounded by a white ring for depth and interest. The roof overhangs this entry for protection from the elements, and a ladder beneath it helps nestlings exit the shelter when ready. A small hole on the base of the unit allows any captured water to drain, and the overhanging edges of the roof camouflage the ventilation gaps. Remove the back panel of the home for nest checks, and swing the included mounting peg upward to display the item on a fence or wall. For a different look, attach a mounting plate (not included) to the wooden base and place the unit on a pole or post. The bright colors add a friendly hint to your backyard, while the wooden body provides birds a warm roost. Start a charming bird village in your garden using this Yellow Capitola Bird House.

Note: Climate and the elements will weather this home and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the item's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this house, you should cover it with several layers of 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 item will weather and require refinishing.
