Santa Cruz Cottage Green Bird House

Accommodate your local birds with a spacious and charming home using the Home Bazaar Green Santa Cruz Cottage Bird House. The olive green paint of the shelter is accented with white and pale yellow trim, while a wood shingled roof complements the home by adding a natural look. An imitation door and windows enhance the front of this house and are set within a porch featuring railings and columns. Both sides of the house also have imitation windows, while a 1.25" diameter entrance for resident birds sits within a gable above the porch roof. This home can be mounted atop a post with an appropriate mounting plate (not included) or can be mounted to a wall or post with the dog-eared plank on its backside that swivels upward. Beneath this plank is a 5.5" x 4.5" panel that is removable for routine maintenance for a clean roost. A mesh ladder inside the home ascends the front wall toward the entrance, making for an easier exit for nestlings. A hole in the center of the base offers adequate drainage, while space between the sidewalls and the roof provide plentiful air flow for a pleasant and ideal nesting place. Offer backyard birds safe and comfortable quarters with this Green Santa Cruz 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.
