Announcement   Help out the birds. Buy a birdhouse, get a feeder, feed them and they will come. There cool, well made and created to make them feel right at home in your garden. I'm tellin' ya, you're going to enjoy having those little feathered friends around. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, a martini, glass of wine, or whatever it is that will quince your thirst, sit back and watch the magic happen.
AND...if you wouldn't mind check out my book that's world wide and in many different languages... https://www.etsy.com/listing/481437192/my-published-book-of-handmade-birdhouses?
Handmade birdhouses and feeders by Michele McKee-Orsini (that's me) offers custom hand built, well made, bird houses that accommodate small cavity nesting birds and bird feeders that will invite birds to your garden. You know...they eat a ton of bugs that might be eating your plants! Who wants that?
It's not only fun to watch these feathered creatures, it's educational for the little ones, as birds create a nest for their growing family. I'm always excited to see birds occupy my birdhouses, knowing that I've created a safe habitat for them to thrive. Not only do they host for nesting, birds will take cover in the winter to keep warm. So it's a win, win situation. Not only do they provide great shelter for the birds, as well as their nesting needs, these birdhouses will spruce up your garden.
I've become very involved in the study of birds (Ornithology) to create homes for cavity dwellers so I can make these bird nest boxes to the specific size.
All my handcrafted creations of birdhouses, bee houses, bat houses, feeders,etc., are handmade from scratch with my own two hands, that I've designed, cut, built, painted, embellish, take photos, list, pack and make sure they are of good quality. Each one takes time to construct. The price is based upon the time, what embellishments I've put on and the cost of the items used. Thank you for understanding the work involved.

About

BIRDHOUSES DON'T BUILD THEMSELVES - I DO!

~My attempt at making a video by myself turned out to be just too funny not to post. Eventually I will try, try again in the making of a film that will be entertaining, while showing you the fact that I make them myself and don't get them from China...lol. Enjoy! (I hope).
~ I've discovered how much fun it is to watch birds, studying their habits and learning what certain garden birds like in birdhouses. Building birdhouses for cavity nesting birds not only satisfies my creativity, it helps birds find safe places to raise their young.
~There's never a dull moment in my adventures of finding new things to embellish or construct my birdhouses with. My walks with my lady friends always turns out to be each of us carrying some kind of object back home that will be a part of one creation or another. I love them for that...supper supportive.
~ Designing, engineering and constructing well built birdhouses for birds since 2008 with accomplishments of a ‘How To Book’ Handmade Birdhouses and Feeders, Published by Cico Books, which is in several languages. You can find my book in my supply shop here www.etsy.com/listing/481437192
~I've been featured in three magazines such as Birds & Blooms, Handmade Living, Long Leaf Style, Bises Magazine of Japan and now Roger's Gardens of Newport Beach. I feel truly blessed with all and hope to be in more.
~ Wood birdhouses are made from raw untreated fence material which makes it easier on the birds by allowing the roughness of the interior for birds to grab, along with a dowel that protrudes through for extra grabbing power. Each birdhouse I build has a unique roof design, by me, which allows for ventilation air flow on each underside of eaves. Every decorative bird house or functional birdhouse is equipped with a clean out door on either the right or left hand side for nest removal. Whether you choose to use it indoors for decorative home accent or hang it on your patio, tree, fence or just sitting on a shelf, it's meant for small cavity nesting birds. Birdhouse accent materials are adhered with clear silicone that is weatherproof and freeze proof for that extra longevity outdoors. I use quality glue, nails and decorative screws to hold my birdhouses together.
~All birdhouses are constructed by me with consideration of the bird’s wants, needs and functionality. Each birdhouse is equipped with a clean out door for proper nest removal, either on right or left side, as well as the roof. Most of my bird houses hang from heavy wire attached to the roof edge, which you can easily hang from decorative iron planter stands, tree limbs and open eye hooks.

Hello and welcome to my shop of birdhouses, bat houses, bird feeders, bee houses. Mostly I build birdhouses. My love of birds has brought me to creating nest boxes from scratch that are appealing to the human eye, yet functional for our feathered friends to nest, as well as for your gardening pleasure. I do my best to make my product sturdy and weather proof. All products exposed to long periods of time in harsh weather will damage over time without proper care. With each birdhouse order there will be a card provided on how to care for your item.
Here are a few bird friendly tips: 1. Research birds in your area to learn about their nesting habits. 2. Choose durable birdhouses that have ventilation and enough depth to accommodate a nest 3. Set out birdhouses in fall or early winter if possible. 4. Situate a house where birds can find the privacy they need to nest, hatch, and raise broods. Turn the entrance away from high-traffic areas of the yard. 5. Select a site in a sunny location shielded from revailing winds. Place house close to trees and shrubs. 6. A rough surface below the entrance hole, inside and outside helps birds come and go. 7. Decide if a perch outside the entrance hle if preferable. Experts have differing opinions on perches. Some say perches are fine; others believe predators can use them. 8. Leave birdhouses up year-round if you prefer. Some cavity-nesting species will use a birdhouse for shelter in winter. 9. Remove old nesting materials at the beginning of autumn when you are certain the breeding season is done. A hinged or removable top, side, or bottom enables you to easily clean the house. 10. Scrub inside birdhouses, using a mild solution of organic soap. Set them in the sun to dry thoroughly.

Thank you for being a part of a birds life ~ Michele McKee-Orsini
