A ceramic box is another attractive option that works well in the warmer months. Over winter, they may not insulate well enough to keep brooding birds warm. The beauty of ceramic birdhouses is their aesthetically pleasing rounded forms, such as spheres, domes or pear shapes. Ceramic birdhouses can be a simple white or glazed making them a fun gift choice to personalise for a bird lover.
Cleaning ceramic bird boxes can be easier than other materials because birdwatchers can rinse them down with warm sudsy water and dry them in their dishracks. The non-porous nature of glazed ceramic means these boxes are less likely to become infested with parasites or contaminated with disease.
