This birdhouse is actually two houses with an inner wall separating twin nesting boxes each with a 1 1/4" entry hole. Stationed in front of the double ornamental doors are two Chinese guardian lions, a male with his paw resting upon the world and a female restraining a playful cub on its back. Pairs of these "shishi" are believed to have powerful mythic protective benefits that are perfect for a birdhouse. Symbolically, the female lion protects those dwelling inside, while the male guards the structure. Messages of good fortune adorn the front posts.

about Home Bazaar
Avian Housing reaches new heights with Home Bazaar's distinctive line of architectural birdhouses, bird feeders, and related garden accessories. Take a bird's eye view of Home Bazaar Victorian designs enhanced by authentic scrollwork and turn-of-the-century, cottage inspired embellishments.
All of Home Bazaar birding products are designed for outdoor use in the garden or can be enjoyed in the home as a decorative accessory. Home Bazaar birdhouses, birdfeeders, garden pedestals, and garden accents will transform your backyard into a haven for nesting for many years to come.
Each of the Home Bazaar larger bird houses and bird feeders can be complimented with a dramatic pedestal that will perfectly match and support the home. Most of the Home Bazaar medium to smaller houses will come equipped with a mounting bracket or will hang without any additional hardware.
Wrens, Chickadees, Finches, Nuthatches and Titmice will all be thrilled to find these bird dwellings equipped with removable back walls, unpainted natural interiors and non-toxic outdoor grade paint.
All Home Bazaar pieces are intended for use outdoors.
The houses are fully functional, with removable back walls for easy cleaning.
The hole openings (Excluding Purple Martin Houses) are designed to accommodate common cavity dwellers such as Wrens, Finches, Chickadees, Nuthatches and Titmice.
The feeders will attract all types of wild birds.
The houses and feeders are constructed of:
Western Red Cedar or Pine shingles for the roof.
Exterior grade ply-board for the walls, floor and underlying roof board.
Kiln-dried hardwoods,pine and poly-resin for the details.
Outdoor, non-toxic paint.
The Pedestals are constructed of exterior grade ply-board, kiln-dried hardwood and exterior grade, non-toxic paint.
The pedestals are to be placed on a flat dry surface, such as stone or cement. They should not be placed directly on grass or dirt. You may suggest a base of pressure treated wood be put beneath the underside of the pedestal footing or base and then secure the bottom of the pedestals to the platform.
With time, all Home Bazaar products will need to be refinished when left outdoors. The shingles (cedar) will patina to a silvery color and the piece will become weathered and distressed.
No chemicals or sealants that can be harmful to wildlife have been used.
