This BlueCottage Birdhouse will beckon the birds to come-a-nesting in spring and summer and raise their young in your yard or garden. The cottage features a white door between two white shuttered windows with window boxes full or flowers. It has a "folk art" look with the shutters highlighted with small red hearts. . It is embellished with flowering shrubs and a large leafy tree. How can you resist? On the other hand, if you don't have birds around (or just plain don't like them), the gourd birdhouse can make an attractive garden or home decor ornament, as well as a great gift item!.

The birdhouse measures 10 inches tall (including stem) and it is 7 inches wide. The photos show two front views, the right and left sides, and the back. PLEASE NOTE: If you wish a particular color of cottage (e.g. to match your house), please contact us for information on a custom order, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

This birdhouse was hand painted by yours truly with great care and love. The first coat is done with Kilz to seal the gourd and prevent any distorted coloration. Then they are painted with acrylic paints, and completed with several coats of polyurethane gloss. There are drainage holes in the bottom, and for your convenience we have drilled two holes in the top and inserted a dowel, to which a wire loop is attached for hanging. We do recommend that your bring the birdhouse into your garage or home during the winter if you live where there is a lot of inclement weather.

The bird hole is 1-1/4 in. diameter, which is attractive to several cavity nesting birds, which includes the Bluebird, Chickadee, Titmouse, Nuthatch, Wren, Swallow, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers. Some types of birds do not like the gourds to swing, especially Bluebirds, so you might want to stabilize the birdhouse if you live in a Bluebird area. And many birds the opening to be away from the prevailing wind direction, so you might want to bear that in mind also when choosing your location.
