Three faux windows, a front door, and a porch rail add realism, while wooden shingles cover the pitched roof. Several anchor cut outs on the trim and shutters, followed by one on the front door, easily capture attention, and a 1.25″ diameter entry hole sports a white arc above it for added style. This allows small songbirds to enter the unit, and the generous interior provides plenty of nesting area. Drainage holes on the level base help any captured water exit the nest, and gaps beneath the roof overhang offer ventilation. A bit of screening on the interior of the shelter creates a ladder, for fledglings to reach the exit, and a ledge below the entry hole offers a bit of interior perching room. The back panel removes for nest checks and cleaning, and a hanging tab extends upward for placement against a post or wall. Rest the base of this roost on a table or other level surface for a different look. The navy and white paint lend traditional tones to your garden, while the anchor figures provide a recognizable theme. Solidify your love of boating by adding this Navy Anchor Cottage Bird House to your yard.
Note: Climate and the elements will weather this home and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the item’s natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this house, you should cover it with several layers of a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow. You should expect that once left outside, the item will weather and require refinishing.
