Besides creating nesting opportunities, there are many other ways you can make your garden, balcony or terrace a bird-friendly environment. One of the most effective ways is to feed the birds all year round. With the Vuglhus, a high-quality birdfeeder, the birds in your neighbourhood are sure to feel especially at home.

Product information

Feeding birds all year round in private gardens, balconies and roof terraces has become an indispensable means of combating the dying out of birds. In order to provide your garden birds not only with food but also with a suitable nesting place, it is best to combine the “Vuglhus” feeder with one or more nesting box (the more the better – simply depending on the space available).

The Vuglhus feeder, like all Hanehus products, is of course a genuine, natural product. It is made of high-quality hardwood (3-ply natural larch wood panels) and is protected by an environmentally friendly, natural, wax-based coating (breathable, water-repellent, self-cleaning).

 

To make cleaning easier, the Vuglhus feeder can be disassembled into its constituent parts in seconds – and like with all Hanehus products, no tools required.

Location

The Vuglhus feeder can be used in many ways: it fits in your garden, on the balcony, the roof terrace or even on the windowsill of a city flat. When choosing a location, you should consider the following points:

 

Weather protection

The location should be as dry as possible, protected from the wind and ideally partially in the shade.

 

Protection from natural enemies

Cats, weasels and the like should not be able to sneak up to the feeder without being noticed by the birds.

 

Sufficient distance from any windows

A distance of 2 metres is sufficient so that the birds do not fly into a window pane when approaching the feeder.

 

Positioned 1-2 metres up

Positioning the feeder at a height of 1-2 metres also means that refilling and cleaning are easily possible without a ladder.

Mounting

You can easily mount your Vuglhus feeder without tools or extra parts. And our number one choice:

 

On a tree

Hanging your Vuglhus is 100% tree-friendly. Simply wrap the natural fibre rope around the tree and tie the ends together in a knot – preferably directly above a side branch to prevent it from slipping down later.

You can find instructions on how to tie two rope ends safely and neatly HERE.

 

On a wall

The central opening at the back of the nesting box can be used for mounting with wall hooks or something similar.

For reasons of sustainability, the mounting hook is not automatically included in the delivery. We ask you to specify “incl. free wall hook” when you ordering if required.

You can find more details on the topic “What to consider when mounting a bird feeder” in the BLOG section.

Maintenance

All Hanehus products are made of wood – a wonderful, natural product. Each piece has a unique grain pattern and its own shades of colour, thanks to the knots and annual rings of the tree. Due to variations in light conditions and humidity, the outer appearance of our products is in a constant state of flux. This is how, among other things, a natural “darkening” occurs over time.

If the wood were to be completely exposed to all weathers with no protection, damage would occur in just a few weeks. Therefore, all our products are treated with an appropriate surface protectant.

To avoid damage later, this protection should be reapplied, preferably after one year, and at the latest after two years – at least on exposed areas.
