Wildlife World Anita Artisan Garden Bird Nester
Wildlife World Shesali Artisan Garden Bird Nester
The artisan garden bird nesters are handmade to the highest quality finish using natural hogla grass and recycled saris.
(Hogla is a type of grass that abundantly grows in Bangladesh and is used as a material for baskets, cushions and placemats. Hogla grass regularly causes problems near the shores as it can overgrow whole harbors, rivers and ponds. This material is considered a weed and the local villagers remove it.)
Every nester is unique in colour! Each artisan chooses a colourful recycled sari pattern making every nester different, so the one you may receive may be a different colour / pattern to the one shown in the photo.
The Anita is the largest (dimensions 18cm x 15cm x 14cm) ‘Spherical’ model of our Artisan Wild Garden Bird Nester range. Spherical in shape it offers a larger cavity perfect for species of small garden birds who roost together. Offering a cosy place to roost during harsh winter months, plus in springtime, small birds may use this Fair Trade product as a nest.
The garden bird nester has a sturdy inner frame for support and strength. Attached are metal hooks at the rear and a long loop at the top to ensure you can fasten the nester securely. As a result, these make it easier to site the nester in the natural leaf cover and vegetation of ivy, bushes, trees or hedges. The nester has a small round entrance reinforced with steel. It is also slightly protruding to make it easy for birds to land and perch on.
Position the bird nester in a sheltered space to keep out harsh weather. Preferably face the bird nester between North and South-East. A warm, protected roosting space out of the prevailing wind can be a lifesaver for small birds during cold, harsh weather conditions.
The Artisan Bird Nesters are a World Fair Trade Organisation product. Purchasing a Fair Trade product helps both wildlife and people. In addition to giving a bird a nest, you’ll be supporting the Artisan workers in Southern Bangladesh who make them. Funding the survival of many women and their families from rural communities in desperate poverty.
