You could say Griffith Creek Designs The Liberty Birdhouse is a birdhouse with a presidential air. This delightful piece was commissioned by President Gerald R. Ford in honor of his daughter, Susan. Now you and your avian friends can enjoy the star-and-stripe-bedecked work of art, rich with detail and the rustic beauty of antique wood. Every house is fashioned with timbers hand-picked from barns, varying in age from 140 to 100 years, which have been slated for demolition.
The Liberty is 14 inches high, weighs 8 lbs. and has a 1.25-inch diameter entryway. It's sealed with a marine varnish that's both highly water resistant and safe for birds. With a laundry pin perch placed at the bottom of the birdhouse to help discourage predators. The box features drainage and ventilation holes and a roof that's easy to remove for cleaning. Designed to meet the needs of native species, the house will attract chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, Prothonotary warblers, wrens and woodpeckers. As each one is an original and unique creation, every house will vary slightly in appearance.
