Another favorite of our colorful birdhouse, is the Sunflower Birdhouse. A wonderful wool creation that is hand felted and can be hung outside as well as inside, and yes, small birds like wren, chickadees, nuthatch and titmouse may go inside!
This is an amazingly fun and functional gift for young or old and a perfect gift for bird enthusiasts.
Do Birds Really Go Inside? YES! Small birds use them as a safe place to nest and rest. Birds such as titmice may also pull parts of the body to take the wool to add to their nests. How Long Will It Last Outside? If hung in a protected outdoor area, such as under a porch roof, our birdhouses will last for years and years. If placed in direct sun, colors will begin to gently fade over 2-3 months, but they will retain their shape for more than a year in fully exposed weathe.
How do you clean it out? It’s easy to remove old twigs and nesting materials from the handy clean-out hole in the base or through the entry hole. If the outside becomes soiled, a good brushing is usually all that’s needed.
