It’s a stately piece, substantial in size and stunning in detail that adds some impressive curb appeal while attracting feathered friends. Birds bring gardens to life and fresh water along with food sources bring birds!
Our newest Copper and PVC bird feeder actually looks like wood (similar to all styles) but the real beauty lies in their long-term durability. They’ll withstand the harshest elements without peeling, cracking or rotting as wooden feeders are known to do over time.
Squirrels are far less likely to chew on PVC, have you ever really seen one gnawing on vinyl siding of a house? It’s extremely rare, but should they try and shimmy on up the post, there’s an unobtrusive white post-mount baffle to stop them dead in their tracks!
With a large 5-inch acrylic feeder tube that’s sheltered from elements, birds will delight in dining here season after season and for many years to come!
For even more of the finer architectural detail, a PVC seamless lamp post creates the ideal mount for this stunning feeder. No need for the standard 4×4 pressure treated wood post when installing with the lamp post. It’s available in a 4-inch, fluted style or 5-inch raised panel design.
You’ll be the envy of the block with feathered friends dining in high style! All Copper and PVC bird feeders are handcrafted in the USA and guaranteed for life. New large capacity and hanging styles too!
Oooh man, the elves have been busy! For anyone following the gift ideas, so sorry we dropped the ball, but getting gifts out the door for timely delivery was far more important!
And speaking of timely delivery: If you happen to be local in the Atlanta area, our elves will be delivering on Christmas Eve too! So it’s not too late to procure a smashing gift that not only lasts a lifetime, but promises wide smiles as well.
YOU CAN STILL GET IT BY CHRISTMAS: Simply order a copper roof bird feeder (or dovecote birdhouse) by 2:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon… and receive it in just a few hours! The sleigh is packed, and the reindeer and helpers are ready to deliver some major cheer! We’re not sure who in their right mind would brave the mall or stores tomorrow? Especially when a most awesome gift will magically appear on your door step! Well, maybe not that magic… you do have to pay for the item… but local and timely delivery is on us!
And to finish… here are the remaining verses’ true meaning of the popular Twelve Days of Christmas:
Four Calling Birds The four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John
Five Golden Rings The Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament
Six Geese a Laying The six days of creation
Seven Swans a-Swimming the seven-fold gifts of the Holy Spirit: Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy
Eight Maids a-Milking the eight Beatitudes
Nine ladies Dancing the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.
Ten Lords a-Leaping the ten commandments
Eleven Pipers Piping eleven faithful disciples
Twelve Drummers Drumming the twelve points of belief in the Apostles’ Creed.
Not too shabby for a jew, huh? But pretty sure somebody messed up those last two icons!
Religious persecution (what a surprise) spawned the carol, and history says from around 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. The famous song was written as catechism for young Catholics during the holiday season. With two levels of meaning: the surface, plus a hidden meaning that was only known to members of the church. Each element is code for a religious reality which children could easily remember.
We wish for you the merriest of holidays,
filled with light, love, laughter, family… and birds!
The Birdhouse Chick
Shiny, happy copper will light up a recipient’s face when the box is opened! How would we know this? Recently at a local show, our copper bird feeders were the buzz of the day. Someone had even walked down to see what the “glow” was all about. Yes, they’ll glow in direct sunlight.
Gazebo post-mounted feeders are done in PVC/vinyl to make them completely inert. Impervious to the elements, the vinyl lasts for life, but the real beauty to us… they look like wood. Over the years many customers have told us of woes with their wooden feeders that have rotted. These were majestic, and beautifully crafted (and expensive too) but their life expectancy wasn’t quite commensurate with the price tag.
We’ve not had one complaint nor return for these copper feeders and birdhouses in eight years, so we’re pretty darn confident in our product! From small to large, and huge capacity hoppers, we know the birds LOVE them too!
Gracing the landscape with timeless elegance, architectural styles abound in different shapes with an aged patina copper finish as well. This is an acid wash done via heat process, so the color remains… 10-20-30 years down the road. The shiny roofs will stay that way for about 3-4 years before starting to weather. When copper weathers it gets dark, this aging process creates a very dark brown tone that takes many years to actually patina. The bright copper may be preserved (prior to weathering) with a quality copper polish applied every year.
Another stunning copper feeder is done in stained glass, and guess what? It glows in the sun too! Hand made with the most vibrant glass colors, this one hangs to entice feathered friends. Both copper bird feeders provide plenty of perching space and drainage to keep seed dry. Using quality materials, both are meticulously crafted to last for life.
A gift of nature offers usage everyday, by birds and recipients. A glance at the feeder has the capacity to remove one from swirling thoughts and to do lists! There’s no batteries and no plugs… which is what allows one to simply unplug!
It’s our hope and mission to entice more folks to backyard birding through shiny, happy feeders like these 🙂
Oh yeah.. the show!
It took a while but there’s a new & improved birdhouse chick website! The best part is after 8 years, you’ll find the same personal service that brings our customers back again & again, plus some really cool birding wares and garden art. The site’s mobile friendly and easier to navigate, but we’re still working out some kinks. Hey, we’re simple nature folk, feed the birds and dig in the dirt, we’ll happily leave coding to the web developers!
As for the $3000 copper bird feeder? You can nab one for about $350 (with the promo code MC10) Why the ridiculous price tag? All in good fun and a charity bidding war! Last week in Wilson, NC, Mulligans Fore Kids held a charity event complete with auction. It seems a bidding war ensued over the item, fetching an impressive donation for the kids.
Is the feeder worth a few hundred bucks? You bet! Because it’s maintenance-free, sans any wood at all used in construction- it pretty much lasts forever. The secret is vinyl – like the kind use in housing construction. It won’t deteriorate like wood because its impervious to the elements. Give this impressive bird feeder a good cleaning with the garden hose and forceful spray, it won’t do any harm.
Feed the birds in style while creating a stunning focal point in the landscape. And please do check out our new site… logo above will take you straight there and don’t forget the promo code!
So many great suggestions… so little time! The elves got caught up with the “holidaze”, busy-busy crunching out fantastic gifts birds love! That’s basically where our other 22 gift ideas went, it’s been all hands on-deck!
As far as getting it there by Christmas without spending a fortune on expedited shipping? We’ve got this one figured out!
You can send an awesome copper bird feeder or house (with free shipping-as always). The recipient will receive a special package by the 24th, that’s sent Express Mail. It contains a few goodies for the birds, and a hand-written note letting them know something very special is on its way! Since there’s some info enclosed about the house or feeder, they pretty much know it’s one or the other… but they don’t know just how nice it actually is. Definitely a fun gift that piques curiosity!
Aside from the traditional gazebo styles, there’s large capacity hoppers for the extreme birder. These newer designs accommodate 10, even 20 lbs. of seed, and offer post-mounted and hanging versions as well. Because all of our copper feeders and birdhouses are constructed (in the USA) of durable vinyl/PVC, they last a lifetime, and cleaning is as simple as using the garden hose with a forceful spray.
No flanges or parts required for mounting, installation is simple with the attached mounting collar. It slides right on a standard 4×4 wood post, and the decorative brackets are included too. Both are vinyl to ensure there’s no deterioration. Even the finials are composite resin. The coolest thing is that these look like wood- you can’t tell the difference, and oh yeah… and birds love them too!
But this pre-gift package must ship by Monday, 12:00 pm, EST. It’s really the last call for an on-time Christmas delivery without wasting money on expedited ship services!
