Solar Birdhouse




From the website:



Why would only humans make use of eco-friendly technology?

We designed a birdhouse with a solar panel on its roof.

During the day, sunlight feeds the solar panel, charging a small battery.

At twilight the transparent stick will light up and cast a tiny light on your garden.

This light attracts an easy nighttime snack for the bird — all she has to do is stick her beak out of the hole and wait for the buzz.

7.1" x 3.5" x 3.5".

Meranti wood.


Apply within.

Perhaps some kind of heating unit would be more useful. Something would find a useful home there if not birds. Makes an interesting conversation piece in any case.

There's no way a bird would kip in that!

It might also be a beacon for predators, like a neon sign at a seedy bar. "Tasty Morsel Inside, Open All Night". Meow!

Our feathered companions tend to be very particular about nesting habits. Since this item is nonexistent in nature, please forgive me for guessing this birdhouse will be attractive to and may temporarily harbor flying insects.

In my neck of the woods this would certainly include the large cockroaches we euphemistically call 'palmetto bugs'. Very novel, but is it approved by the Audobon Society? Caveat emptor!
