From Le Petit Chalet's Bright Group, this colorful Cardinal Bird Feeder looks like a quaint cottage with a chimney, door, window and its own little bird feeder. Hangs from attached chain; roof lifts for easy fill and care. The architectural detail of Le Petit Chalet’s birdhouses and feeders add unique beauty to any home. Reminiscent of quaint country cottages, Victorian houses, chapels and other charming buildings, Le Petit Chalet uses real wood, exterior water-based paint, with UV protection, and galvanized screws and nails for top-quality construction and long-lasting beauty. Le Petit Chalet birdhouses and feeders are also built with attention to the needs of birds with details like breathing and drainage holes, bird hole openings, space inside and distance from hole to floor researched and incorporated on every model. Climate and the elements will weather the house and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the item's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint), it is recommended to cover it with two to three coats of a water-based semi-gloss outdoor wood finish. You should expect that once left outside, the product will weather and require refinishing.
