Offer your feathered friends a cozy, coastal shelter with the Home Bazaar Mist Santa Cruz Cottage Bird House. This domicile mimics features of a traditional seaside cottage, adding lovely color and bold architecture to your bird garden with ease. The pitched roof and square body form a familiar shape, while wooden slats evoke shingles for extra detail and style. Faux windows and doors capture attention thanks to their navy trim and white framing, perfectly enhancing the gray body. A 1.25” diameter entrance sits at the top of the unit, surrounded in both navy and white to evoke a window. This allows small birds to enter the home, and the roomy, unpainted interior offers plenty of nesting space. Screening beneath the entry hole creates a ladder, for nestlings to exit the home when ready to fly, and a drainage hole in the center of the base keeps the nest dry. The roof overhang hides ventilation gaps, helping regulate the home’s internal temperature, and a generous back panel removes for nest checks. A hang tab on the back of the piece allows you to place it on a post, fence, or wall, and its flat base may rest on a different level surface. The wooden construction lasts for many seasons, and the fantastic color combination enhances your garden. Provide a relaxing retreat to birds with this Mist Santa Cruz 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.
