Wren House

Item Number: 1W-FG
Please note that current faceplate is a reddish color.

Proven in Europe for over 40 years. 10-1/2" high x 6-1/2" diameter, 23" overall including hanger, 8 lbs.

1" hole-Made specifically for American house wrens.

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.

Great box--was a

We've have had a 1-1/2 inch Schwegler box for years that has been occupied by White-breasted Nuthatches almost every spring. It's been fun having such a durable box. This year, we decided to put a wren box up on the side of our garage, away from the other 2 Schwegler boxes on our property and two other nest boxes. We were surprised that it was occupied by a Carolina Chickadee in May--didn't think it would fit in the 1-inch box. Then in July, I noticed a territorial-acting House Wren in the vicinity of the box. Sure enough, like the chickadee before it, there were nestling sounds coming from inside. This was almost like having a two-for-the-price of one event. In any case, we love the Schwegler boxes. Wish I could include a photo of the box showing the two-story nests!

We put the wren box up when it came - maybe 10 days ago. About three days later there was a wren making a nest in it. We will see if this is the nest that is picked for the eggs. I understand that wrens make several nests before they make the big decision. They are adorable - singing and working all the time.

These wren houses are truly amazing. They take about 5 minutes to install including getting the ladder out of the shed. Mama wren moved in the next day and started building out her nest. The house is also very easy to clean.


I love this wren house!

Not only do I love this wren house, but more important the wren will love this house. We ordered two wren houses and hung both yesterday afternoon; within 20 minutes, a male wren was checking out one of them! WOW! It'll probably be a while before he finds a lady friend to show it off to and to see if she approves and accepts it. And I love that it is solid and strong. We've lost a few previous wren families to predators -- probably raccoons -- so a tough but air-permeable construction is important. Those *&%$#*! raccoons will destroy a few teeth trying to get to any chicks in these houses.


A cement bird house???

I was not happy when I received this bird house. It is made of cement making really heavy. The color of the area with the hole in it is pictured as gray. the one I received was a nasty deep rose color with a chocolate brown body. Would have returned it but it was too heavy and expensive to return. The only good thing is the hanger that comes with it.
Owner Response: We're sorry you are disappointed in this wonderful birdhouse. Our website does clearly indicate the weight of the birdhouse as well as the composition. It is not made from cement, but rather sawdust, burnt clay, and other natural materials. As for the color of the faceplate, that is really dependent upon the clay available to the manufacturer at the time of production and can certainly vary.

When this arrived i was rather taken back at how truly heavy it was. We put it up where a wren had been diligently trying to build in my outdoor cushions and they took to it immediately instead. They're happy-I'm happy

I have purchased several of these over the years. Both sizes of openings. Some of them are nearly 20 years old and look and function as new. Hangers have lasted, also. Easy to clean. Always used by birds every year. Recently purchased more.

I had wrens move into the new wren house 10 minutes after I put it up. I am planning to replace my old wooden wren houses that have fallen apart over the years with these amazing Schwegler Wren Houses. What a great product!

I ordered this wren house for the first time last spring and the wrens loved it. So I ordered another one for my own use and one for my nephew's birthday.
