A fun project for kids and adults, the Box for the Birds requires no tools or glue. Sturdy wooden birdhouse kits are an excellent medium for creative, and purposeful activity! With a critical shortage in nest sites, (due to increased competition from non-native birds and the decrease in natural habitat) birdhouse kits provide real nesting and roosting spots for feathered friends.
This birdhouse kit is called the Right (as in Frank Lloyd Wright) because it’s modeled after the famous FallingWater House in Mill Run, PA. Pretty cool, huh? You can stain, paint, and decorate as desired… the birds will love it, as it’s sure to host many successful broods over the years!
Check out the video below of the story behind Box for the Birds.
An innovative design keeps seed dry- no matter what! Rain, snow and sleet can not penetrate this durable feeder because unlike a typical tube bird feeder, the seed ports are totally protected from the elements, even from driving, blowing rain.
Birds perch on a generous seed tray, and eat seed from above. The design consists of a built in weather guard, that overhangs and protects seed ports (and birds too). The All-Weather Feeder is available in a four or 6-quart capacity, and may be pole mounted or hung. There’s also an optional squirrel guard, or cage that fits around the open feeding area to keep pesky squirrels out! Stainless steel construction along with sturdy polycarbonate casing means this feeder won’t yellow with age either.
The optimal seed for this cool feeder is black oil sunflower, or a mix of safflower and black oil. Striped sunflower is actually too large for the seed ports. If you’re looking for a truly weather-proof bird feeder, this is it! By the way… it ships for free too 🙂
When all other solutions against pesky squirrels raiding your feeders fail, then it’s time for some squirrel proof bird feeders that really work! The line of Sky Cafe feeders is innovative, attractive and durable, they even guarantee against squirrel shenanigans. When these feeders are hanging, squirrels can not get past the large, wide baffle, and the cool design even helps protect seed ports from weather.
A large capacity, non-cage style squirrel proof feeder, dining birds are easily viewed from all angles with no obstructions. You’ll spend less time filling and more time watching beaked buddies in your yard. Several styles and colors are available, this one even has seed dividers for an “Al a Carte” menu!
