Proven in Europe for over 40 years. Long reach from front of box puts nest at rear beyond reach of cats or squirrels. 11-1/2" high, 7" wide, 9-1/2" long. 18" overall including hanger, 14 lbs.

1-1/2" hole for Eastern Bluebirds and tree swallows.

These birdhouses are made from a unique blend of 75% pine sawdust, burnt clay and other natural materials, formed and baked to provide a nesting home for birds that is healthy for them and which will last for 20 years or more in your garden. This remarkable material actually "breathes" like wood. Yet it is completely rotproof and the non-toxic brown paint on the roof and sides sheds water like a duck's back. Resistant to damage by squirrels and raccoons. Seven models, with entry holes specially sized for American birds.

How to clean a Schwegler Birdhouse

Late February is the ideal time to clean out your birdhouses. Old nests should be removed in case they harbor harmful mites. And new ones should be ready in place for the male Bluebird scouts, when they're looking for nest sites in March.

Love the birdhouse. Looks great in the yard. We are excited and hope to have bluebirds this spring.
Owner Response: Hi there, Try and position them on a post or stake so they are about 6 or 7 ft high - and looking out over 30 or 40 ft of lawn area. The bluebirds seem to love it, when they can perch right above their house - then swoop down over the grass and pick up insect food for their chicks. Graham Kinsman

I have purchased at least one a year for several years as the birds just love these as do I. They seem to last forever.

This house is different from any other house I have tried. I just got it hung this weekend and can't wait to see what birds take an interest. Very well made and should last a very long time. Design makes it really easy to clean out.

Five Stars!

This is my second order in two years. These bird houses are well received by the birds as well me. I am ordering 5 more to replace the wooden boxes bought last year that were destroyed by squirrels and woodpeckers after the first season. These Kinsman bird house have sustain no damage, so cost-wise these have been a great investment.

Wow!

I bought 3 of these bird houses, and find they stay damp and cold after our harsh winters, and since they have no drainage holes, the floor of the house is always wet, even when cleaned and aired in the sun. The blue birds don't seem to like these very expensive houses either.
