Bird Houses

A customer inquiry led to the beginning of Braecrest's bird house line in late 2007, and we spent a great deal of time learning about birds' nesting habits. As with our feeder products, these houses are made from rough sawn Western Red Cedar, and are available in natural wood (i.e., unstained), or finished with a UV-resistant environmentally-friendly stain (available in a variety of colours). The bird houses' dimensions and entrance holes are sized to attract a range of bird species but also to exclude others. However if you want to maximize the use your bird house, we can customize the entrance holes upon request.

Some bird species like to build a nest on a tree fork or other flat surface. For these bird species we build Nesting Platforms.

Braecrest Design is pleased to offer the following bird house products:
