These 3 birdhouses these are all in a lighthouse fashion with a solar light on top of each one. The big red Holland Lighthouse in the last photo has a 6 volt battery and a car flasher inside to make the solar light blink on and off about once every 20 seconds. This is one for show only, I don’t leave the battery inside for a period longer than a day at a time. This light is a DC current only solar light. This one measures 22” L X 12” W X 18” H. The middle photo is a normal shaped birdhouse with some shutters and a heart design centered on each shutter. Has a regular solar light that runs on 2 ni-cad rechargeable AA batteries. It charges during the day by the sunlight and runs the light at night off the batteries. The first photo is like a cottage on a lake with a telescoping flag pole and flag and has 4 dowel perches for the birds to sit on and 4 inch and a quarter round holes with shutters on each side of the windows along with a nice red front door with a knob setting and a pair of steps leading into the house. On the left side of the roof it is hinged at the top so just this side opens to add the bird food inside. The right side is fasten not to open. This also has a round 20” light that is seperate from the house itself, its made of galvanized white roofing material and I painted red stripes on it and added a solar light. I now have about 4 other houses all cut out and just needs painting and assembled before good weather comes hopefully next month.
