Eco-Egg Bamboo Birdhouse
Groovy Egg Birdhouse is 100% sustainable bamboo.
Eco-Egg is made of bamboo fibers, vivid vegetable color powder, and uses natural binding agents. Bamboo is water-resistant and provides excellent insulation for birds, making this abode the perfect nesting and roosting spot for smaller birds like Carolina Wrens, Bluebirds, Titmice and others.
A biodegradable product that will host feathered friends for about 4 or 5 years, the Egg will start to deteriorate about one year after reaching a landfill.
Fun bird home features include:
•Sustainable, bamboo grows rapidly, up to two feet per day
•1.5-inch entry suits Eastern bluebirds, Carolina wrens an others
•Inside steps or kerfs to facilitate fledglings "stepping out" when ready to leave the nest
•Cozy ventilation and drainage
•Galvanized hanging cable
•Easy cleaning by removing two screws
Measures 8" x 6" (without hanger)
Item Weight .75 lb.
It took a while for them to settle in, but they did!
I purchased this and had it hanging in my yard for a few years before the chickadees got the idea, but they moved in and made a nest this year. It was fun to watch the babies fledge outside my window. Easy to take apart for cleaning and we could see the perfect little mossy nest. Lasts longer than 4-5 years, at least here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, even up all winter, every winter.
Great for Texas
I just received my Eco-Egg birdhouse and I can tell that it's going to be great for our Texas heat. While the metal houses I have a decorative and I do love them, they are just too hot for nesting. I love the vents holes in the back of the Eco-Egg and feel good about enticing birds to nest there. I also like the ease of taking it apart to clean at the end of the season, not to mention the fabulous colors.

Thanks Ann! May your new birdhouse host many successful broods :)
