Teapot Bird Nester

Teapot nester for small birds with handy hole for hanging up on your garden wall. This teapot nester is a quirky way of providing a nesting site for small birds, as they prefer open nesting sites.

This includes:

  • Wrens
  • Robins
  • Wagtails
  • Thrushes

Despite being fiercely territorial against their own species, robins will actually care for other bird species around their nest. They have been known to feed other chicks including song thrushes, willow warblers and flycatchers.

  • The open entrance allows you to have a great view of the small birds flitting in and out, transforming the teapot into their home.
  • Easy to install in any sized garden to attract birds

Where to place your teapot nester? To attract robins to your garden, tuck this nester into flower beds, amongst climbing plants, hedges or log piles so they feel safe away from predators. Female robins will then flit in and out and give this nester a renovation. She’ll line the cavity with dead leaves, moss and hair to make it comfortable for the cold snap and a safe place for laying eggs.

Who will enjoy this bird nester?

  • The teapot nester is a great gift for gardening enthusiasts who can enjoy watching their garden come alive with movement and song.
  • Lovely present for bird watchers, who can observe the birds’ patterns, watch the breeding season, and detect the birds from their beautiful warbling. They’ll love watching the young birds develop after fledging.
  • Educate children in ornithology with the open view of the nest.
  • This nester will look right at home in a barn conversion or country cottage, as a quirky addition to the garden wall.

What’s it made out of?

This teapot nester is made out of fired ceramics. This means that it’s totally water resistant so it can hang proudly outside all year round. Buildings made out of fired ceramics are built to withstand earthquakes, demonstrating how robust this material is.

How to position your bird nester

Position the teapot nester within some greenery or vegetation cover, with the teapot facing between north and southeast and between one and two metres high.

Fix the teapot nester using either malleable garden wire, passing it through the specially designed fixing holes and around the base of the handle, then twisting around a convenient support.

Alternatively you can screw the nester to a support through the hole in the base, taking care to only gently tighten against the included rubber washer.

How to care for your bird nester

When used the nester will be lined with grass, moss and leaves so it's good to give it a clean annually in late summer. Aside from this, the bird nester does not need any further care.


This item will be dispatched between one and two days and arrives in a colourful box – easy to wrap if it’s a present!
