The Bird Birdhouse is one of Fowl Places' animal theme birdhouse designs. Each Bird Birdhouse is made from 7/8" or greater thickness old fence or barn boards and old metal sheeting. A wide variety of materials are used to construct the Bird Birdhouses. Removing the Bird's copper wire foot allows the nesting compartment to be opened (see animation of this feature below). The metal sheeting used to cover the head (roof) and breast side is from the old Tonasket Aqueduct system (Tonasket, Washington - USA). All metal used is as obtained. A front to back ventilation gap is designed into the area above the door to allow solar metal heating to escape the nesting compartment. No chemicals, stains nor paints are applied by Fowl Places to the materials obtained for birdhouse construction (see the Fowl Places "Features" page for more information on birdhouse materials).

Dimensions of the Bird Birdhouse are roughly 19 inches tall by 7 inches wide. From front to back is 6 inches deep (4 inches inside). The Bird Birdhouse design is for the smallest cavity nesting species having a 1-1/8" entry hole (Chickadees, Nuthatches, Titmice and Wrens) and is available in a left or right facing version. The floor of the birdhouse is just about at mid-wing - 5-1/2 to 6 inches below the eye entry hole. Nesting compartment opening animation can be seen by rolling you mouse over the image to the right.
