Now you can provide a lovely little sanctuary where the birds of your yard or garden can retreat. Griffith Creek Designs The San Luis Rey Mission Birdhouse is modeled after the adobe church of the San Luis Rey Mission. The mission, founded in 1798, is one of the largest and most famous in California, nicknamed "King of the Missions." Now it has been recreated in antique wood, with timbers salvaged from barns, aged 140 to 100 years, that have been slated for demolition.
The mission birdhouse is 14 high, weighs 8 lbs. and has a 1.25-inch diameter entryway. It's sealed with a marine varnish that's safe for your avian guests. The piece features drainage and ventilation holes and a roof that's easy to remove for cleaning. Specially designed to meet the needs of native species, this house will attract chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, Prothonotary warblers, wrens, woodpeckers and more. Each birdhouse is an original, unique creation and so will vary slightly in appearance.
