This is a great buy for anyone who needs a couple of gourd birdhouses to provide homes for their nesting birds. You get 2 gourd birdhouses, variety of shapes and colors (will vary) with a 1-1/8" or 1-1/2" entrance hole. Drainage holes in bottom, leather hanging strap, may have some very minor imperfections, which do not make any difference in the performance of the birdhouse. Gourds may be a combination of kettle style, dipper style or bottle style birdhouse in a variety of colors.
