Do birds really go inside?
Yes! Small birds such a wrens, nuthatches, and chickadees use them as a safe place to nest and rest. Birds such as titmice also pull parts of the body to take the wool to add to their nests.
How long will it last outside?
If hung in a protected outdoor area, such as under a roof, our birdhouses will last for years! If placed in direct sun, colors will begin to gently fade over 2-3, but they will retain their shape for more than a year in fully exposed weather. Of course, it will last indefinitely indoors. Birdhouses are also made of water repellent and thermal sheep's wool. Moisture will wick through the felt around the nest; houses with air-dry since wool naturally breathes.
How do I clean it out?
It's easy to removed twigs and nesting materials from the handy clean-out hole in the base or through the entry hole. If the outside becomes solid, a good brushing is usually all that's needed. If it becomes stained, work the spot with water and mild soap, then rinse and air-dry. Do not put in washing machine or dryer.
