Over time, wooden birdhouses tend to weather, and if you happen to have pesky squirrels who like to gnaw on wood…well, this doesn’t help much either. The new recycled birding products are constructed to last a lifetime, and most come with manufacturer’s guarantees to never crack, split or fade. They may cost a few dollars more, but the investment is well worth it. Aside from a durable, long lasting product, you’ll be helping to keep plastics out of landfills, and every little bit does matter!
The recycled blue bird house pictured above is made from 43 plastic containers, is of the highest quality and approved by the North American Bluebird Society (NABS). Look for this symbol when purchasing a bluebird house to ensure it meets proper standards for bluebirds.
