1 1/2" Tree Trunk Birdhouse

Item Number: 1B-38
Please note that current faceplate is a reddish color.

Proven in Europe for over 40 years 10" high x 6" diameter, 15" overall including hanger, 8 lbs.

1-1/2" hole for Eastern Bluebirds, 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.

Recently, we carefully removed last year's bluebird nest from a 20 year old Schwegler birdhouse to show you in the video below. While the nest cup was made from soft dry grasses, we were surprised to see it resting on a 2" foundation of hundreds of 1½" fruit stems, perhaps from our crabapple trees. A perfect insulation and drainage material – springy too.

Very well made and attractive but, too heavy.

Like the two houses we ordered but did not know that they would be so heavy. Look rustic and blend well in the garden. We will have to figure out how to hang them securely do to their weight.

We are staying cold in Oklahoma but a few blue birds are around. I have all four bird houses up facing east and at the right height so I know that the bluebirds will like them. They are extremely well made and so easy to take apart for cleaning. Water will not collect at the bottom and the birds can safely raise their young. Extremely satisfied.

Beautiful and sturdy. Can't wait to put it up this weekend after the snow melts and we can get the ladder out in the yard!

I am a long-time customer of Kinsman. I bought one of these bird houses at my previous house and the birds loved it for over ten years. They returned every Spring. I left that birdhouse at my old home and have already put up the new one. No residents yet but I do hear alot of birds around. Very happy with Kinsman products.

A pair of blue birds are already moving in, a week after putting house up in tree. So, i don't know how comfy it is, but seems to meet with the birds approval!

I have 10+ Schwegler birdhouses. Growing up in Germany I saw the first one almost 50 yrs. ago and it still is on the same tree being used yearly by Chickadees. Here in Wyoming, its mostly wrens and tree swallows using them. They are so durable and I will get more in the future.
