|This is an original hand painted gourd birdhouse created by gourd artist: D. Almond. These are perfect for young trees, old trees and especially nice to hang from the eaves of your home for those birds that like to build in and around the wood studs. They are a great asset to deter nesting in your flower pots or hanging baskets during the spring! It will bring conversational beauty inside or a beautiful home for our feathered friends outdoors in the garden. All my painted gourd birdhouses have been sealed several times and drainage holes placed in the bottom for outdoor use. Please excuse any glare marks from my camera. They are not defects, but glare from the sealed glossy coat finish. 1 1/2" hole entry.
