    On a more classic note, go for these architectural birdhouses (matching feeders too). Stunning in the landscape and fine housing for feathered friends, these vinyl birdhouses are guaranteed for life.

    Some rustic birdhouses include driftwood from Indonesia, vintage church birdhouses and natural log front bird abodes. The latter replicate cavities in trees and snags where birds with no housing will seek safe digs to rear young. The salvaged logs are chosen for their uniqueness and deep openings. Forming a natural predator guard, they keep nestlings safe from intruders and cozy dry in the worst elements.

    Birdhouses serve friendly fliers well throughout the year. Aside from nesting in spring, most offer up a cozy roosting spot for cold nights. They add character to the garden and simply help feathered friends thrive! All in all, a totally swell idea for any nature buff on your list!

    Send Some Love with Unique Birdhouses

    Here’s why birdhouses are a great choice for Valentine’s Day

    send some love for Valentine's Day

    Because they’re purchases with purpose! They add value and beauty to our lives and to those around us. They bring song, color and life to our spaces through those visitors who use them.

    Granted one will see more activity at a feeder, but real estate is scarce out there, so please help house the birds! Competition for natural nesting space is ever increasing, and most cavity-dwelling birds would be happy to raise their young and call any of these unique birdhouses “home”.

    Among those birds who use houses; bluebirds, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, woodpeckers, wrens, finches purple martins and more. As a side note, owls, ducks and bats will take you up on man-made nest boxes as well. Because their habitats are also shrinking, providing places for shelter and successful broods can prove most rewarding.

    Styles range to suit all tastes, from basic to mod to vintage. Materials are just as varied, from copper and PVC/vinyl, wood, ceramic, even driftwood!

    There’s absolutely something for everyone and something for every birdhouse-using species!

    Those who don’t fancy birdhouses? Robins, blue jays, cardinals and goldfinches to name a few of the more common birds. But they’ll take up residence in trees, shrubs and hedges if the habitat suits them. They’ll use bird feeders and frequent your birdbath too.

    This Valentine’s Day, nix the chocolate and short-lived flowers. Opt for an artful creation with purpose… and please help house the birds 🙂
