Copper roof tops are durable and weather to a beautiful patina, or polish to protect its shiny finish.

Exterior walls are painted with toxic-free paints, keeping birds safe and adding a splash of color to wood.

Victorian Bird Houses

Bird House patterns include gabled Victorian mansions and manors with balconies, ideal for backyard birds.

Purple Martin Houses

Aluminum bird houses for sunny regions and wooden for moderate temperatures. Place away from branches, high in the air.

Bluebird Houses

Shelter Eastern Bluebirds with a 1-1/2" - 1-3/8" hole. Western and Mountain Bluebirds need a larger 1-9/16" opening.

Bat Houses

Environmentally friendly bat houses attract and house bats. Bats aid in dispersing seed and controlling insect populations.

Butterfly Houses

Small slots encourage butterflies to fly through and nest. Plant flowers to attract and create a butterfly garden.

Helpful Tips!

Room count is essential when attracting birds such as Purple Martins, who like to nest in colonies. Materials are important in climates that are hot or cold - wood is well insulated, and vinyl and aluminum keep the interiors cooler for hotter climates. Hole diameter helps determine which species will nest as the hole must be big enough to fit the species while also small enough to keep out predators.

Made in USA Bird Houses

Recycled Bird Houses

Bird houses are constructed from naturally regenerating resources, recycled woods, and leftover materials, using woods harvested in managed forests.

Birding itself is an environmentally and animal friendly hobby, so our bird houses should be as well. All of our bird houses are eco-friendly and safe for wildlife habitation. Many of our bird houses are American made, and we proudly label all of our American made products with the Made in USA flag. When viewing additional images of the products, look for our American flag symbol to the left.
