The drumming of the Woodpecker’s beak on wood, about 10-16 strikes per second, lets their mate know where they are and marks out their territory. Luckily they have shock-absorbing tissue between their bill and skull. Or…chiropractor. All Woodpeckers drum, but the single male drums four times as much as the happily paired males. To help it climb trees, the Great Spotted Woodpecker has two toes facing forward and two back. Who wouldn’t want to pick a ‘pecker for their backyard?

Our Great Spotted Woodpecker is:

  • 31cm high by 15cm wide (including the branch/spike)
  • Easily installed with the tap of a hammer (pre-drill hard wood)
  • Crafted in 3mm Corten® 'weathering' Steel to form a beautiful patina that changes with the seasons
  • A great gift for someone who overcomes every obstacle with the power of repetition

Our birds are designed with 3mm CorTen steel to form a protective patina that deepens and strengthens with the seasons. This patina will deepen in shade over the years until it reaches a deep brown/charcoal black hue.

This self-sealing aspect of CorTen steel provides a quality guarantee of up to 100 years, ensuring that our product lasts a lifetime and remains completely corrosion resistent.

What might initially resemble generic rust is simply the air and water-tight patina forming over a six month period, so don’t panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it’s been designed to do, and this patina will protect the steel from any further damage and disintegration.

CorTen steel does not require any treatments, oils or chemical additives and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly.

All of our birds are dispatched with GLS. However, depending on your destination, this can be handed off to a local courier once it.

Over the years we’ve tried everything in our quest to find the perfect Metalbird material and believe Corten Steel is it. Corten Steel or ‘Weathering Steel’ is used in high-end exterior architecture, for good reason. Exposed to the elements, within weeks it develops a patina that seals the steel and preserves it for decades. It also leaves a beautiful even coloring that will get darker over the years.
