Add both color and historic charm to your bird sanctuary using the Home Bazaar Red Shelter Island Summer Cottage Bird House. The generous size, intricate detailing, and bright colors throughout this unit add a crisp and striking look to your yard, perfect for housing birds or creating a focal point. Dual levels of faux windows mimic a two story home, and shutter shapes flank a few of them for added realism. Geometric forms and gingerbread trim beneath the roof line capture attention, and decorative railings on each level complete the unit. Wooden shingles adorn the intricate roof, and its pitched shape and generous overhang prevent rain from reaching the 1.25" diameter entry hole. This opening allows small songbirds to enter the shelter, which provides plenty of nesting area. Two drainage holes on the base of the home help it remain dry, and a ventilation gap beneath one side of the roof keeps the interior temperature nicely regulated. A bit of screen beneath the entrance helps fledglings reach it, while the balcony area outside the entry offers perching and landing spots. Remove the significant back panel to check the nest or perform seasonal maintenance, and display this home on a wooden post with its included, 5.75" long bracket. Made from wood, the structure will remain lovely for seasons of use, and its deep red color adds an elegant hint. Showcase unique architecture in your garden with this Red Shelter Island Summer 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 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.
