Building the Nest Egg

This nest box is beautiful on its own in your garden, but imagine how much you'll want to see it when birds make a home right under your nose. The box is easily cleaned and, in addition to being constructed of non-toxic, natural and sustainable materials, it's completely weatherproof. Share this nest box with children, friends and family for years to come. Wrens, Bluebirds, Sparrows, Larks, Nuthatches and Titmice are just a few that would like this kind of home. Handmade in Canada.

Please note: due to the handmade nature of this item, each will vary. The wave design on the front (below the opening) isn't simply decorative, it is there to give the birds a better perch when entering the nest box. During the glazing process, some of the glaze is wiped off the wave design to provide a better grip for the birds, as the glaze can be slippery.

Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it does, both in terms of beauty and durability. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. The Warren's make sure all their handmade stoneware is made in an environmentally friendly fashion and hope you take as much pleasure in their art as they do in exploring new ways to innovate current standards. collection

      Lovely ceramics and nicely shaped. I can't speak to how well it attracts birds.

            We chose the 9 day delivery and it arrived in 2! Bought this as a gift for my Dad who loves birds, and couldn't be happier- beautiful design and masterfully crafted. Highly recommend!

            This handmade Nest Box will make bird watching in your back yard a little easier! Do you know a bird lover who would love this stoneware and bamboo birdhouse?

            I like to concept, but would not buy it because it is so expensive.

            I love it, especially the colors. Certain colors attract certain birds. Will blue-ish gray be the only option?

            Julia, Community Organizer

            Great idea Ciara. Blue is the only color available at this time, but we'll keep your suggestion in mind! Which colors would you recommend?

            Thanks for the answer, I think it'd be cool to see one in red, with somewhere to put the syrup for hummingbirds. Or forest colors like browns, greens, and grays which attract songbirds.

            this would look awesome in my back yard. And the tree swallows would love it too!

            This is beautiful and would make a wonderful gift, though the price is high.

            Anything for our little bird friends! The grooves under the entrance look like they would be great for little birdie feet.

            This is beautiful and looks well-made, however the price is high. Although, it may very well be worth that much from the craft and beauty.

            beautiful! I love that it's partially made from bamboo. Can you include a photo of how it opens for cleaning?

            Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

            Thanks for the suggestion, Kat! If this product is accepted into our assortment we'll include information on cleaning to help you keep your bird's home nice and tidy!

            I like it - love the colour and the style. But does it hang? Can I mount it on the side of the house or a tree or on a pole?

            Is there a way to tell when it is occupied by a bird? Otherwise how will you know when you can clean it?

            A real bird would nest in it.

            So beautiful! Would be a good addition to my garden area to attract birds. Price is a little on the high side.

            Beautiful garden art, worth it if it would last for years outside. A nice gift for retired parents or grandparents!

            Pretty but price is too high. Does look very sturdy though.

            Results on this item are coming soon. While our buyers are calculating the votes and contemplating your comments I'm here to answer a few questions. This handsome house can be easily hung using a single nail or screw. The only way to be certain whether a bird is living in it is to keep an eye on the box. When it isn't occupied, you can clean it by undoing the wires that hold the ceramic front in place and opening the box to get it ready for it's next occupant. Thanks for your questions!

            Marie

            Very beautiful as a conversation piece, love the colors. Don't see it as a nest box though. Extremely high price. Don't we have any talent in the USA?
