Home Bazaar Capitola Cottage Bird House - Red
Capitola bills itself as California's oldest beach resort. It features trendy shops and restaurants on its shore directly connecting to a fishing wharf and its large, sandy beach. In the summer of 1961 hundreds of birds attacked the town. Alfred Hitchcock, who was a regular visitor to nearby Santa Cruz, read about this episode and went on to direct a film--The Birds--based on the idea of hundreds of birds attacking humans. The reason for this attack remained unknown for over 25 years until it was discovered that the birds had been affected by domoic acid, a toxin produced by red algae! This red house with a blue door and yellow window frames comes equipped with a mounting bracket for easy installation. A 1 1/4" hole will allow wrens, finches, chickadees, nuthatches and titmice to nest. The roof is topped with sturdy pine shingles. Ventilation, drainage and a removable back wall make this house fully equipped for years of use.
