1 1/4" Tree Trunk Birdhouse

Item Number: 1B-32
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.

1-1/4" hole for wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice and small woodpeckers.

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.

CORRECTION on the bird occupying the house on the last review (or so). It is NOT a Pine Siskin, but rather a Pine Warbler. And on that note, I watched the three little ones leave their great home this sunny morning after a 1" rain last night!!!


Didn't Take Long to Become Occupied!

I live in the mountains with numerous mature trees around. After hanging this in a Birch tree, it soon became occupied by Pine Siskins. I thought it was cool they chose this as their home over numerous trees, both deciduous and conifers. The front sliding off will make it easy to clean out the nest, as opposed to a 1" clean-out area in some of my "cheap" houses. Some of them are rotting. This one will never rot.

We are looking forward to attracting some wrens, perhaps chickadees in the new house. We have had others from Kinsman, and are always successful with them. This one is sturdy, easy to open and clean out.


We have nesters!

I purchased this bird house since I've always wanted birds to nest other than wrens and I saw that 1 1/4 inch holes would attract Chickadees. It only took a few days and a Chickadee has been going into the house to build a nest every day over the past two weeks. The quality of the bird house is awesome and I expect many years of families in this house.


Bluebirds moved a week later

I bought these birdhouses because the wooden ones we have were rotting. In addition, birds were pecking holes in the sides and squirrels were chewing on the entry ways. I put up the Schwegler birdhouses and a week later there were bluebirds in one of them already! By the end of spring, there were bluebirds in both. I plan to buy others for other kinds of birds.

Very satisfied with quality. It's too early for nesting, so I'm waiting to see if I get any customers in it.
