About Erickson Birdhouses

Erickson Birdhouses are "hanging around" everywhere… throughout the United States and such far away places as Canada, The Caribbean, Europe and Japan. Our collector birdhouses are especially popular with birders, gardeners or anyone who enjoys the outdoors and nature. And while each house is constructed to withstand outdoor elements, upwards of 30 percent are collected and displayed indoors in various settings.

Birdhouses are really "in" more backyards than ever and Erickson Birdhouses capture this trend with individually handcrafted, sturdy and easy-care birdhouses made from old and new woods. Each birdhouse is assembled with copper and brass fittings and clad with verdigris copper or rusted tin roof. Polished copper is available on request. Side walls open on each birdhouse for easy seasonal cleanings. All birdhouses feature a 1 1/4" opening... the ideal size to accommodate a variety of small nesting birds anywhere. Each Erickson birdhouse is an original. No two are exactly alike and production is limited. A hanger is included so all houses arrive ready to hang and enjoy!

One of our white barnwood birdhouses with verdigris copper roof missed "the last flight out" and weathered Frankenstorm Sandy which pounded New Jersey and New York in October, 2012. None the worse for wear from driving wind and drenching rain, the birdhouse remained hanging amidst the devastation.

Erickson Named The Official Birdhouse of the NBBA

April 1, 2012 -- Erickson Birdhouses announced a three-year sponsorship agreement with the National Backyard Bird Association (NBBA) that makes Erickson Birdhouses "The Official Birdhouse of the National Backyard Bird Association."

The agreement will continue through the 2015 migration. Erickson will get key sponsorship placement for all major NBBA events including the Aviary Games.

"To work with an organization like Erickson Birdhouses, which combines marketing excellence with birdhouses renowned for handcrafted quality and accommodating designs is an extraordinary opportunity for the NBBA," said NBBA Commissioner R.T. Sparrow. "With birdhouses hanging around throughout the United States and as far away as Canada, Greece and Japan, Erickson Birdhouses should help to expand the reach of the NBBA throughout the world."

American Nostalgia

Our Country Collection red barnwood birdhouse measures 9" x 6" x 10" with 1 1/4" opening. The nostalgic, hand-painted "Mail Pouch" chewing tobacco sign represents real American folk art and is our "signature" work. From an earlier time: "Mail Pouch" signs were painted on the sides of barns throughout the Midwest and mid-Atlantic states as a form of advertising along "major" two-lane highways. Some faded signs remain today. Easy to clean out. Choice of metal roof.
