A castoff exterior lighting fixture forms the frame of this unusual six-sided birdhouse; an ornate piece of chandelier hardware completes the exotic "temple" look. A ¾" wood liner protects the nesting area from any heat buildup. With its 1 1/8" entry and 4 ½" wide interior space, it appeals to the smaller cavity-nesters in your garden, such as chickadees and wrens. Note: Because they are made from recycled materials, the metal parts on these houses may be weathered (tarnished) to varying degrees, which adds to their charm.
