Out on the East End of Long Island, in the toney hamlet of Quogue, you'll find summer houses just like this one. A great, big beautiful wraparound porch and a western red cedar shingled roof, including a turret, are the standout features of this new Signature Birdhouse. Three hanging flower baskets adorn the porch. There are two separate nest boxes separated by an interior wall. A removable back wall, drainage, ventilation, an unpainted interior and a 1 1/4 ” hole size will accommodate wrens, finches, chickadees, nuthatches and titmice. Item Dimensions: 12"H x 16"W x 12"D.
The houses are fully functional, with removable back walls for easy cleaning.
The hole openings (Excluding Purple Martin Houses) are designed to accommodate common cavity dwellers such as Wrens, Finches, Chickadees, Nuthatches and Titmice. The feeders will attract all types of wild birds. The houses and feeders are constructed of: Western Red Cedar or Pine shingles for the roof. Exterior grade ply-board for the walls, floor and underlying roof board. Kiln-dried hardwoods,pine and poly-resin for the details. Outdoor, non-toxic paint.
The Pedestals are constructed of exterior grade ply-board, kiln-dried hardwood and exterior grade, non-toxic paint. The pedestals are to be placed on a flat dry surface, such as stone or cement. They should not be placed directly on grass or dirt. You may suggest a base of pressure treated wood be put beneath the underside of the pedestal footing or base and then secure the bottom of the pedestals to the platform.
With time, all products will need to be refinished when left outdoors. The shingles (cedar) will patina to a silvery color and the piece will become weathered and distressed. No chemicals or sealants that can be harmful to wildlife have been used.
