Colonial has patterned their birdfeeders and birdhouses after some New England house designs. Individual cedar shake shingles make these houses very attractive and unusual. You can build a “saltbox”
birdhouse to attract nuthatches and titmice. Or try the “covered bridge” birdfeeder that looks like - you guessed it − a covered bridge that is a tray feeder that holds seeds, nuts, grains, fruit and other similar bird foods.
Colonial also has a very interesting “carriage house” birdfeeder kit with basswood battens and trim and even a birch cupola.
These Colonial products are assembled with screws that allows removal of the base for easy cleaning. Because they are made of wood that needs to be painted you can dress them up in your favorite colors. They have been
producing these kits for over 10 years and are located out East in Berlin, Massachusetts.
