Keep the birdseed clean and dry and watch that it doesn't become moldy. Moldy birdseed can lead to disease in birds. Clean and disinfect the feeder at least twice a month.
The sculpture is made of a frost-resistant polyresin that has been protected with a thin coat of polyurethane. Although it is frost-resistant, we recommend that you bring it indoors during extended periods of freezing weather.
To prolong the life of the feeder, you may apply a new coat of polyurethane before placing it outdoors the next season. Use a clear, exterior-grade polyurethane (available at most hardware and paint stores). Polyurethane finish will not harm birds that feed or bathe.
Make sure the finish is completely dry before filling the feeder with water or seed. Keep in mind that a polyurethane finish requires regular maintenance and a new coat must be applied before deterioration of the old coat begins.
