    Get Major Curb Appeal with a Dovecote Birdhouse

    five-foot tall dovecote birdhouseGift idea #37 Make it palatial

    It’s got to be the grandaddy of all houses… as far as aesthetics anyway! Standing almost five feet tall and two feet wide, this dovecote birdhouse is a most impressive site when situated in the landscape. It takes some room, we refer to it as “estate size” because its grandeur commands more than just any old spot.

    Martins may take to it if a scout finds its surroundings suitable with plenty of open area and a good distance from trees. Having a pond, lake or nearby stream is also a plus for them. No doubt somebody will be roosting during cold nights prior to spring nesting season, and really, could you blame them? If I were a bird, I’d not only know who to poop on, I’d claim these sweet digs for my own!

    The dovecotes also come with a stunning aged patina roof, but the real beauty in these homes is dovecote bird-houses in vinyl/PVC are maintenance-freethe meticulous construction using vinyl/PVC. You see there’s no wood at all, nothing to rot or deteriorate over time. The material won’t mildew either, and it never requires painting, just a damp cloth with some soap to remove environmental build-up. Heck, you can even take the garden hose to these birdhouses and feeders for a thorough cleaning should the desire strike!

    So maybe this one’s a little too big for the average lot? No worries, they come incrementally sized down to a six-or eight-inch diameter, perfect for chickadees, titmice, bluebirds and other friendly fliers. Your resident birds would be happy to call this residence home and the recipient will absolutely be wowed!

    Great Birdbath Accessories to Entice Feathered Friends

    Add a fountain to your hanging birdbathGift idea # 4o: Make it Move

    What happened to the other 3 gift ideas? We were busy getting our own baths and bird habitat ready for the coming polar vortex! Out with the water wigglers and drippers- in with the heaters.

    Without a doubt, the easiest way to attract more birds is with fresh water. Even a plant saucer with an inch or two of water near shrubs or a tree line serves friendly fliers and other wildlife well throughout the year. If you have an existing birdbath, or know someone who loves bird watching- it’s easy to understand the sheer joy of seeing birds bathe and wade, or preen and drink from the life-essential offering.

    Accessories like misters, fountains or drippers really bring a birdbath to life with the gentle motion of moving water. During the season, hummingbirds can be seen flitting about a moving stream of water. Butterflies adore leaf misters plus gardens grow lush below them. Even songbirds quickly become trained awaiting the start of birdbath action each morning!birdbath accessories like drippers entice more birds

    You can quickly craft your own simple dripper from a milk jug! Take said plastic 1-gallon milk jug and poke a tiny pin hole in the bottom corner. Use a chain or strong wire to hang the jug above your birdbath. At one small drop every 3 or 4 seconds, the gallon of water will last at least a few days. There will definitely be increased activity that’s well worth the effort… for you and birds alike!

    Should you be pondering the perfect holiday gift (without breaking the bank) for the nature lover on your list, a leaf mister or even mister-dripper combo will bring great joy… and for many seasons to come!
