Lower CT River Valley Scenes


I build these birdhouses using custom license plates that I design and make in my studio. They will never rust. Hang in dappled sun or full shade for happy birds and long lasting colors. The air vents on the sides, under the protection of the eaves, allow air flow through-out. The roof is removable for easy access to clean out old nests.

Memories of the lower CT River Valley area are shown off on this captivating birdhouse. Gillette Castle and Valley Railroad (steam train) adorn the sides, while the Outer (Breakwater) Light at the mouth of the river in Old Saybrook covers the back. On the roof is a view looking south down the CT River, with the historic Chester-Hadlyme ferry making its crossing. The front displays a chart that covers the area, topped off by our state flower, the Mountain Laurel, so prevalent in the woods in this area.
