Tait Birdcabin

These sweet and thoughtful birdcabins, designed and made in Australia by Tait, have been made to appeal to your local Lorikeets and small parrots.

They provide a place for birds to nest, rest and refuge in areas where hollows have diminished. They are crafted from spotted gum timber off-cuts salvaged and reused from the Tait factory floor and a single piece of cleverly folded steel.

Birdcabins are designed to hang from a tree or a verandah with openings carefully sized to allow a bird to fit in and feel safe, without being followed in by a predator. Even though they are designed to hang, to make them more appealing to birds you may want to fix them so they are stable, more like a hollow. The use of untreated timber also addresses bird life disdain of foreign smells. $170
