This bird house gourd is a real eye catcher with the brilliant purples and reds used.
There is no mistake that not only birds love the gourds, but also the bird lovers!
This gourd is one of special gourds I have done with paints built up to show and feel the texture. I have posted a few photes I hoe you can see the texture better.
The gourd is small enough to sit on a desk or table to be displayed as a Valentine's Day gift or a piece of mixed media art. Yes, I have a lot of fun with colors and this bird house gourds shows the depth of color you can acheive with the lavenders and purples.
Like all my gourds, this all weather gourd can be hung outdoors but we suggest you take it in during harsh winter months so it will last many more years. There are drain holes on the bottom and ventilation holes on the sides so the babies stay cool during the summer months.
There is no need to clean it out as the birds will just rearrange the twigs each year.
I include a cord so as soon as you open up your box, you will be able to go hang it outside for the waiting wrens.
Wrens can average 3 clutches a year, so you are in for a summer full of beautiful song birds that devour all those biting bugs!
