Ya just can’t go wrong with two gifts in one that birds love. Not to mention that edible birdhouses also put a smile on the recipient’s face!
From the heartland USA made, premium quality seeds coat these fun and festive birdhouse-feeder delights. More than just a pretty little whimsy, underneath is a real wooden bird house that serves as nesting spot and winter roost once seed is consumed.
The Bed & Breakfast Chalet or Wren Casita will see lots of winter feeding, and then host many successful broods over the years!
To get the most from any edible birdhouse:
For use as a feeder: Best to hang in a sheltered area- away from squirrels and the elements. A weather guard or squirrel baffle is ideal, allowing it to feed more birds over a longer period of time.
Once the seed is consumed: The birdhouse may be stained, painted, or left natural. Simply hang from a branch in a quiet area to provide songbirds the perfect nest site. During the “off-season”, they offer swell roosting spots too.
A win-win holiday gift for any backyard birder or nature buff, edible birdhouses simply rock for their fun character and functionality. The birds will thank you too!
Delectable, functional and a totally fun gift, the original Birdie’s Chalet Bed & Breakfast is back for the holiday season! It’s an awesome edible birdhouse with premium seed consisting of songbird’s favorites; black oil sunflower, safflower and millet. A decorative pine cone on top lets you add peanut butter or even spreadable suet for more variety and a calorie-packed winter treat.
Festively designed to bring smiles to recipients and birds, the gift keeps on giving well into spring. The 1.5-inch entry accommodates bluebirds, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and many others who’d be happy to call this place home!
Once the seed is consumed, the birdhouse may be stained, painted or just left natural to weather over time. A sturdy hook on top lets you easily hang the abode from a quiet branch in the yard. It’ll be hosting a family in no time. Keep the house up year-round to offer a roosting spot on cold nights. During inclement weather, birds may also seek shelter inside the cozy digs.
During rough winter weather, it’s important to remember the resident birds. Food, water and shelter will keep feathered friends around your place through the long cold season. The Chalet is a gift that lasts, for feeding activity now, and for many spring seasons as a useful birdhouse.
Real estate’s tough out there… please help house the birds 🙂
Kudos to the company who makes this edible birdhouse, because that’s all they do… specialty wild bird treats. And birds will tell you they do the job right! The Birdies Bed Breakfast not only looks good for an awesome present, it keeps on giving too.
Really like two gifts in one, a bird feeder at first, so the recipient gets an excuse to sit back, relax and enjoy watching some resident birds. It then becomes a real nesting site for spring. They may even catch someone roosting inside on a blustery day trying to escape the elements.
With 1.5-inch entry, it’s perfect for bluebirds, chickadees, warblers, wrens and other favored songbirds. The full size wooden house beneath the quality seed may be stained or painted, or even left natural to weather over time. A sturdy hook’s attached for easy hanging… just keep it away from squirrels!
Best to use edible birdhouses in sheltered areas as feeders, or with baffles or weather guards. They’ll feed more birds over a longer time if protected from harsh weather and pesky critters. Once the seed’s consumed, the house should be hung from a branch in a quiet part of the yard.
Keep watch in early spring (sure hope it’s earlier than last year) when local birds start claiming nest sites and attracting mates to raise their young. Now, what mama bird wouldn’t be totally impressed with digs like these?
They may only seem like a “gift type” item, but edible birdhouses actually provide several uses for wild birds. Especially during busy migration times, they make an excellent food source with high quality seed for birds along southern migratory routes.
Once the seed’s been picked off, your resident birds will find a cozy roost for cold winter nights. These full size wren houses are well suited for chickadees, titmice and of course local wrens. Some birds may even line their roosts with dried grasses, leaves, or other nest type materials to further insulate themselves from the elements. Locals like bluebirds are more apt to huddle together, retaining body heat for added warmth. Because they’re real wooden structures beneath the seed, these edible houses may be stained or painted to further preserve them.
Nesting! Come spring and the busy nesting season, smaller songbirds find these spots the perfect place to nest and raise their young. Complete with sturdy hook for quick hanging, a branch provides an optimal spot for them… unless you have squirrels around the yard! But this is easily remedied with the use of a hanging baffle to foil the pesky critters.
So it’s not only a killer gift for any nature enthusiast, an edible birdhouse will serve birds well… throughout the year!
Decorated with detailed whimsy and premium seed, it’s almost too tough to put this one outside!
Wild birds will flip for the Bed & Breakfast Chalet… twice over. Once the seed’s gone, the slightly larger entrance offers a great nesting site for most small to medium size backyard birds… even bluebirds. It also provides a cozy shelter or roost during the off-season, when nesting isn’t happening.
But you want it to last as a feeder? Most importantly, keep away from squirrels, they’ll have a field day with any birdseed ornament or edible birdhouse that’s not protected. And rain – that’s a bummer too and will take it’s toll on ruining seed prematurely. Placing the bird feeder/birdhouse in a sheltered area, or using a weather guard or squirrel baffle is highly recommended for use as a feeder. Seed will last much longer to feed more birds.
When you’re ready for the housing, simply hang the chalet from a branch or pole in a semi-quiet part of the yard. A shady area is best suited as direct sunlight is not good for nestlings. The house may be stained, painted or left natural to weather over time. This adds yet another dimension to your gift-allowing for some creativity. The recipient may paint it any way that tickles their fancy… birds won’t even mind a bit should the colors or pattern turn out hideous 🙂
Does it really look that? Absolutely, and with every detail. Festive seed treats and edible birdhouses are spectacular gifts for any gardening buff, nature enthusiast, or birding fanatic-like us. Any holiday leftovers already have a chosen spot in our yard… guaranteed!
