Colonial Birdhouses

Colonial BirdhousesTM


Are you looking to spend quality time with a child doing a project that will be appealing, useful, and a source of enjoyment year after year? Could you be looking for a project appropriate for the classroom, Scouts, 4-H or civic group? Or, perhaps you are simply looking for a enjoyable hobby.

Look no further. Here is the perfect way to fill some leisure time with family or friends or during your own quiet moments. Assemble attractive and functional Colonial style birdhouses and watch the smiles bloom.

Colonial Birdhouses have their origins in birdhouses that were made as gifts for friends and relatives over the years. They were so popular that in 1990, a local hobby store added these birdhouses to their inventory, in kit form. From those beginnings Colonial Birdhouses has grown into a broad line of quality birdhouses and feeders kits, widely available in craft and hobby stores, gift shops and on-line at YankeeGardener.com.

Colonial Birdhouses are patterned after traditional New England building designs. The kits produce high quality, finely detailed birdhouses and feeders that are fun to assemble and promote many years of bird watching enjoyment. Assembled or in kit form, they make wonderful gifts and are an especially nice way to dress up the yard while providing shelter for many varieties of birds.

Colonial Birdhouses are not only attractive, but are fully functional. Kit building materials have been selected to withstand the harshest of New England elements, from driving rain to heavy snows. Overall dimensions and entry holes are sized to attract specific varieties of birds. The houses are ventilated and have removable bases to allow for easy cleaning at the end of the season. Quality is noted throughout the product.

Providing water is the least expensive method of attracting birds. Oddly enough, many people who want to attract birds neglect to provide water for them. Birdbaths seem to get the most business when the feeder is busiest, which isn't surprising. You want a cup of coffee or a glass of milk with your lunch, too...!!! Easy directions for making a child's birdbath is also included.

Feeding wild birds is a wonderful way to enjoy and study nature. Millions of people every year set out winter feeders to entice winged wildlife to their backyards. Some of these feeders are gleefully accepted by hordes of hungry birds, some are patronized, but much of the food is never consumed, and still others are virtually ignored. Is there some secret to luring birds to your feeder...???

When you plant a bird garden, you create a new habitat that is good for the entire ecosystem. Insects, butterflies, and often mammal populations will thrive. Bringing nature back into balance is a challenge, but every little bit helps. Start by planting a garden just for your backyard birds; you and your avian friends will appreciate it. There is nothing more exciting than watching a mother bird drop seeds from your feeder into her young one's throat for the first time...!!!
