This bee hive birdhouse will be a great conversational piece on your end table or be the next home for your small outdoor birds. It is a perfect fit for wrens. We grow our own gourds and let them dry out during the winter months. Cleaning and sanding of each gourd takes place in the spring and I paint them after the seeds are emptied and the inside has been scrapped. There is a lot of work that goes into each of my gourds but I have so much fun painting them.
It is weatherproof like all my gourds and has drain holes in the bottom and ventilation holes on the side. We recommend bringing it inside if you live in a cold, cold climate but in the spring, bring it back out! No need to clean the inside nesting material out!
An 18" cord is included so you can hang it from your closest tree as soon as you receive it.
This gourd is a favorite for wrens. As a former bird breeder, I'm please that this wren house will look great outdoors as well as on your table.
