There was a nearby barn in the Chicago suburbs, built shortly after the Civil War, that workers were tearing down. So we salvaged some of its wood to create this birdhouse. The weathered white paint is original, giving the bird house a rough, natural, primitive look.
Green wooden basket filled with tiny apples. Green painted hand-carved wooden evergreen tree with berry decoration. Real cedar shingled roof covered with sprinkles of "snow," artificial greenery and pine cones. Roughly 9 x 10 inches. About 9 inches high. For the type of bird most likely to nest in here, there is plenty of room to enter the house behind those branches. Also, you don't have to worry about the birds trying to eat the apples or berries, because they know the difference between these and the real thing. Two convenient hooks on top let you hang this on a tree. But the hooks are very easy to remove if you don't want to use them. Made to specifications that enhance the lives of real birds and their needs. And the birdhouses we have made that adorn our own yard do, indeed, have birds nesting in them seasonally. But if you'd rather keep this indoors, it makes a great decoration, too. Depending on where you live, we may be paying a substantial part of your shipping.
