Regular price $0.00 $69.00 Sale

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a mammal in the sky!? No, It’s a bat!!

We’ve got something bat-tastic on offer for a limited time only, introducing……the Flying Fox, more commonly known as the Fruit Bat.  Fruit Bats don't use sonar like smaller, insect-eating bats; they use their eyes and ears like we do. They see as well as a cat at night and are just about as smart. Bats are intelligent and remarkable and they help regenerate our forests and keep ecosystems healthy through pollination and seed dispersal. 

Material: 3mm Corten Steel – designed to rust and age beautifully over time.

Size:
30cm x 22cm 

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.
