The Cardinal is one of the most-loved birds in America, so much so, it has been named the official state bird of at least seven states. We can see why, - it's regal, beautiful, dedicated to mates, and has an incredible song. We think it's one of the world’s finest birds and would look fantastic in any backyard.
The Cardinal makes the perfect gift for any Americans missing home or for anyone who loves this beautiful, red bird.
Ours is made from 3mm Corten steel that rusts to a deep brown. You simply hammer it in. It looks good, attracts real birds just like itself & is almost bulletproof.
Metalbirds are made from Corten® which is designed to rust. This gives them long term protection against the elements, and a beautiful patina that shifts with the season. This means paint won’t stay on for long. If you want to add colour to them, then we recommend having them professionally powder coated. It's easily hammered into most wooden structures and will rust to a deep brown. The hammering of a steel ‘peg’ into a tree will not do any damage to it. It may cause the tree to lose some sap in the short term but will not do any medium or long term damage to it.
All Metalbirds we stock at Blackbird Corner are made in Melbourne, Australia.
