Being a small, dumpy, brown bird, it isn’t easy to find your place in the world, but the Wren makes up for any lost ground with its remarkably loud voice and persistent song. In fact, one insistent captive male Carolina Wren sang nearly 3,000 times in a single day. This charming little battler will bring a smile to your face each time you look out the window. We say good for you Wren!
Metalbird started as a New Zealand-based guerrilla street art project in 2009. Inspired by stencil artist Banksy, Phil Walters designed, crafted and hammered up dozens of life-sized, Metalbird stencils for no other reason than to surprise, delight and intrigue. People loved them! Before long, the art project had turned into a side hustle, then a full time job, and finally with a small team they set themselves the lofty goal of becoming “the Largest Art Installation Project in the World”.
Today these beautifully crafted, iconic, life-like bird silhouettes have been hammered into backyards, decks and gardens throughout New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Europe and finally they’ve arrived with a North American range. With the tap of a hammer a Metalbird will transform your environment into a work of art and surprise and delight visitors for years to come.
This lil bird measures 7" H by 5.5" W (not including spike) and is made in the USA of 1/6" bullet-proof mild steel to form a beautiful patina of rust that changes with the seasons. Easily installed with the tap of a hammer (but pre-drill hard wood).
