Can easily recoat within a couple years time, or let it weather naturally for a rustic gray look. Nesting cavity is left unfinished and rough (like the inside of an old rotten tree) so baby birds can more easily climb out to make that first flight.Each birdhouse is uniquely handmade in Hamilton Ontario. No birdhouse is the same. Also have other birdhouses for sale, check out my other listings!
