Bright, cheerful, and incredibly cute, this fully functional birdhouse is as attractive to humans as it is to avian visitors! Hand-felted by skilled artisans in a Nepalese fair-trade production center, the 9"x6" natural-wool structure is water repellent, dirt resistant, and durable, able to retain its shape for more than a year when fully exposed to the elements. (For longer use, we recommend hanging it under an eave or on a porch.) The 1¼" opening between the monarch butterfly and the sunflower is just right for small birds like chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, wrens, or woodpeckers, or you can enlarge the hole for larger friends such as bluebirds or tree swallows. A bottom slit makes cleaning it out a breeze, and an attached 8" natural rope allows for easy hanging. Of course, our Butterfly Garden Birdhouse makes a wonderfully sunny decorative accent inside the house, too!
