Mother Blue Wrens sing a complex song to their eggs to both train and protect her babies, so they will become strong and survive to adulthood. This song that she sings, teaches them how to beg for food after hatching. Here, these chicks are begging for a worm from their mother the way that she taught them. We think they are too cute!
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.
