Duncraft’s newest creations are “Rooftop” bird houses and bird feeders that have planters as roofs. Using your own plants and flowers, you can transform your bird feeding areas into stunning focal points and enjoy beautiful flowers along with your beautiful birds.
By using recycled plastic, Duncraft has been able to make flower box roofs that are impervious to damage from the elements. Recycled plastic is waterproof, stain proof, and never warps or cracks. You can fill the Rooftops with potting soil and plants and then water as much as you need to—and never worry about ruining your bird feeder or bird house. Duncraft offers two new bird houses and two new bird feeders with the new Rooftop design.
One of Duncraft’s new bird houses, the Rooftop Fly-Thru Bird House is not only unique because of its flower box roof, it also offers two more innovative features that are unlike any others on the market. The first distinctive attribute is that the bottom of the house has been fashioned so that it fits right over a 4 x 4 post. It can then be fastened to the post with supplied screws through pre-drilled holes, making an extremely secure and stable installation.
The second interesting aspect to the new Fly-Thru Bird House is that it features two entry holes, one in front and another in back. Bird researchers have shown that if the nest is violated in some way with a parent bird inside, the bird can use the second entry hole as an escape route and avoid a confrontation with other birds or intruding animals. Duncraft strongly advocates the use of a post baffle with any bird house to keep predators away, but if predators do manage to bypass the baffle, the extra opening could be a lifesaver for any bird within the house.
Enjoy these new houses and feeders!
