    Comments about BIRD NEST DEPOT:

    Since my sister enjoys watching birds, I was excited to give her this little nesting depot. She loved it! It arrived in a very timely manner, and was packed well so it wouldn't break. A great gift, and not easy to find, so I'm happy to have discovered Uncommon Goods.

            Gave this as a birthday gift to a good friend who is a huge animal lover. I thought she would love being able to help the birds assemble their nests. She absolutely loved it. Perfect gift. The piece is a little small, but it has tons of detail. It really doesn't need to be large, but I thought it was worth mention,

                I have not been able to use the Bird's Nest Depot yet since it is January in MN, but I love the design, idea and quality of this product. It is whimsical and yet well-made, and I am so excited to try it. I bought one for myself and one for my sister, and I was so pleased to see the uniqueness of each depot - the stones and accents of each were different and very beautiful each. I love it!

                      I love this product, but not for sourcing. Placed in a secure location, a bird would view this as a potential NEST (even without the materials added).

                      if you put up a birdhouse, are you obligated to furnish the nest too? seems like a silly item to be selling and buying

                      Have no idea what size this is. If I'm spending $30 to supply birds with nest-building material, I'd want this to be large enough to also serve as a decorative ornament in my tree.

                      I love the this depiction of a birdhouse, and the idea of being able to offer nesting materials to small birds. It sort of reminds me of something we'd see in a Dr. Seuss story. It will be a terrific addition to anyone's garden or trees to cater to birds.

                      Birds are very resourceful about getting nesting materials: I've been cat and dog fur show up in nests, and boy do they love the moss I use to line hanging baskets!

                      I've put out fibers and fur for the birds to "feather their nests" before, but it seems like they either blow away or are ignored. Seems like this would make it more likely to stay long enough for birds to get it and still be easy for them to pick up and remove. Meanwhile, it is something interesting for birds and humans to look at.

                      Maybe it is a bit to expensive and untraditional, which I know shouldn't be a problem for uncommon goods. The birds in my yard get along just fine without this.

                      At first glance, its kind of cute. But the craftsmanship is really poor. In the bottom holes, they don't look finished- its rough looking at the clay inside.Also, I don't see birds making this into a home. Its just illogical and too expensive.

                      Even though I voted on several products, part of the fun in receiving Uncommon Goods catalog is seeing what new items you offer. I am a frequent shopper from UG and the voting reminds of the self check out lanes at the grocery store.

                      Great spring gift, but size needed to determine opinion on price.

                      Can't tell how big it is and the edges look a little sharp to me.

                      I can't imagine this could be used by birds.

                      I don't think birds would actually use this. It's lame.

                      Neat idea, but it's really ugly.

                      What size are these birds and how would they even get food?

                      Love birdwatching in my yard, so I would buy and use this. :)
