Vacation Homes - bird style

We love these birdhouses by Cape artist Sal DeSantis! We have one made of wine boxes (above), a couple little cottages, some very elegant two-story dwellings and a couple that defy simple description. Take a look at the collection on our website, or stop by the gallery (25 Commercial Street, Wellfleet) to see them in person.

Sal is a Harwich Port resident. He has been pursuing his avocation in woodworking - especially designing and constructing birdhouses - for more than 35 years. His unique style offers a wide selection of hand made aviary structures featuring single and multiple dwellings suited for exterior or interior use. All houses are designed to accommodate specific species of songbirds including chickadees, titmice, sparrows, nut hatches and wrens to name a few. They are proven nesting houses. His goal is to provide an artistically pleasing structure that will enhance any garden and offer an environmentally friendly home to our feathered friends.

Imagine how happy your neighborhood birds would be.
