Recycled plastic bottles make earth friendly poly lumber for long lasting durable wild bird houses and feeders
If someone told you that a bird house or feeder could look as good in 10-15 years as the day you put it up, you would probably be very skeptical.
Most people will remember all the wooden bird houses and feeder they installed replaced over the years.
Chances are if you are bird lover you are also probably as environmentally concerned.
These Amish handcrafted bird houses and feeders use a recycled poly lumber made from plastic bottles so good for the birds is also very good for the environment.
This ¾” poly lumber is being used in all types of outdoor projects and furniture because of its long lasting durability. It does not rot, split, or fade out from the UV rays.
It also will not become brittle and break in sub zero freezing conditions.
Used with Stainless Steel screws like these houses and feeders built, it should look as good in 10-15+ years as it does the day they were installed.
About the only thing that will discolor these products is mold and even that can be washed off with a mild bleach solution to also help disinfect from diseases.
The dense poly material is just like solid plastic so no penetration of the surface can occur. The material is also color fast completely throughout, so even deep scratches will not stand out.
What is so nice about theses houses and feeders is that they are quality Amish handcrafted and offer such a wide variety of custom color combinations.
You can choose from the traditional earth tones to bright and bold colors adding a splash of color to your gardens and outdoor space.
Many of the bright colors can be combined to even match up with a sports team theme.
They also come completely assembled and ready to hang or mount on to a 4x4 post.
The hanging models all come with a Stainless Steel cable harnesses and a hanging ring.
The post mount models come with a poly post cap already fastened to the bottom of the feeder making it ready to sit on the top of your post and screwed in the predrilled holes.
You can choose from many different specific birds’ species, such as blue birds, orioles, finches, chickadees, wrens, and song birds to sing you a tune while they are enjoying your hospitality.
You can even find a cute covered bridge or Amish buggy bird feeder.
You will find suet feeders as stand alone or in combination with a feeder, and even a peanut butter feeder.
If squirrels are a problem you can set them up with their own poly whirling corn cob feeder.
It will keep them occupied and the kids amused for hours watching them try to master the balance of keeping the corn cobs stationary.
The Amish make a 20 and 40 Colony poly bat house as well as very colorful butterfly houses that will look nice for many years to come in a flower garden.
One of the enjoyments that I grew up with was a bird feeder just outside the dining room window. Our family would spend hours watching the different wild birds coming to make a visit.
Now there is even a board game to play with the family. It is a wonderful opportunity to help kids and adults learn and appreciate these fascinating creatures.
Bird trails offers two games in one with color identification cards of 140 North American wild birds.
The first game uses the cards with the bird names to help memorize, while the second game only has the pictures and your opponent has to correctly name the bird in order to keep the card.
The one who has the most cards at the end of the game wins.
The second game has an easy to view colored reference guide of all the 140 North American birds that you will likely want to keep out next to the window in case a new species shows up to identify them.
The Amish houses and feeders and the Bird Trails board game can be purchased at Cottage Craft Works .com under the Birds and Bees tab.
