Safe sealer for birdhouse

Recommended Posts

Do any of you know of an effective and bird-safe product to protect/seal a pine birdhouse?  I have used house paint in the past, but I would prefer something safer and something that would keep the natural wood look.  Or is it better to leave it raw pine?  Thanks!

I would leave it raw.  I know some people stain or paint the outside, but I never liked doing that.  You just have to realize that you may have to replace the house in a few years.

 I would leave it raw too. All my boxes are raw pine and have been up for a few years and are as good as ever. (Except for what the squirrels did to them. :angry:
