Our cedar (renowned for its decay resistance) birdhouses are crafted in Maine from northern Maine cedar. Each is handmade and unique. The shape and rough texture simulate antique buoys. Each is colored with the highest quality solid stain available. The rope handle is an actual piece of used lobster rope largely beach-combed from a Maine beach after a winter storm. Our birdhouse’s have a base of 5.75” x 5.75” and are 24″ tall. Loosening of a single base screw allows the dovetail base to be slid out for easy cleaning. A drilled hole in the base provides drainage. The flat sides allows pole or post mounting along with the traditional limb placement using the rope handle. We offer two hole diameter sizes; 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″ with or without a perch.
Titmice, Nuthatches, Wrens, Woodpeckers, Chickadees, Warblers, to name the most common.
Bluebirds, Swallows, Flycatchers, Sapsuckers, Finches, Creepers, Snow Buntings, to name the most common.
