Awarded the title of 'Australian Bird of the Year 2019' by a complete landslide, this Pair of Black-Throated Finches are too cute to resist. Black-Throated Finches are endangered and are currently only found in Queensland. They are often found travelling in pairs or in flocks of up to 30 birds.
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.
