Each birdhouse comes with a birdhouse care card which includes the following information:  

Extend the Life of your gourd birdhouse with these easy steps:

-Re-coat with polyurethane each year, this will help extend the finish.

-If possible, avoid hanging in direct sunlight, this will help with overheating and color fade.

-Minimize exposure to rain and snow, freezing and thawing can deteriorate the finish

-If the colors fade or the birdhouse peels, the birds won't mind!  They like them this way too!

Perch of not to perch:  

-Perches may look cute, but they simply give predators something to hold onto when approaching the entrance hole.  Birds do not need a perch to enter the nest, they have such precise flying skills that they can land on the edge of the entrance opening.

-Why are there holes in the bottom of my gourd birdhouse?

-Holes are drilled in the bottom for drainage and for ventilation.
