Attract all kinds of birds to dwell in your backyard, with The San Luis Rey Mission Birdhouse! The San Luis Rey Mission Church was founded on June 13, 1798, by Father Fermin Francisco de Lasuen, and built by the Quechnajuichom Native American tribe.
The San Luis Rey Mission Birdhouse by Griffith Creek was designed to resemble one of the largest missions in California, a National Historic Landmark. Handcrafted from century old barn timbers, this wooden birdhouse is a truly unique garden accent. John Guertin has transformed the red barn of days gone by into a work of art and a nature refuge. Because they are original creations, no two bird feeders or houses are exactly alike. The artist was moved by the idea of associating his creations with St. Francis, the patron saint of the environment, and by replicating San Luis Rey Mission Church. This reclaimed wood bird house attracts wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, titmouses, woodpeckers, and prothonotary warblers. Copper fittings guard against squirrels/sparrows. The roof easily removes for cleaning and includes drainage and ventilation holes. Sealed in bird-safe marine varnish. Antique laundry pin perch placed low on the bird box to discourage predators. 1.25" Entryway. Made in the USA!
