For the Birds
Birdhouses and Birdfeeders are more than an attractive decoration for your yard, they are designed with function and character. All of our houses and feeders feature clean out holes and will host many birds. From the Birdie in the Woods ™ collections, the birds will enter either through the nose or mouth of the birdhouse! These match well with Outdoor Faces, including faces with solar eyes giving character to any garden.
Don’t forget about the hummingbirds! These hummingbird feeders should be setup before scouts look for regular feeders. Our feeder tubes feature a ball bearing in the end to slow any drips. Prepare and check out your local hummingbird migration map to help prepare your customers for purchases. Listed below is a quick sugar/water recipe. Think ahead and prepare early for the summer birding with a beautiful outdoor fountains or bird baths. Attracting customers is similar to birds when placing birdhouses and bird feeders throughout the garden and your store. It is important providing food, bathing and shelter as birds build their nests.
