 As well as being a good-looking guy with his jet-black head and white specs, the male Black-capped Vireo is an absolute songbird, trilling away non-stop all day. You’d have to be in the right place to hear him though because these incredibly rare birds can only be found in one patch of Oklahoma and a small wedge from central Texas down to northern Mexico. The American Bird Conservancy has been working fearlessly to save this priceless little bird and we’re jumping in to support them – 30% of all sales go directly to the A.B.C. Want to help raise its chances of survival? Put up the bird.

Our birds are designed with 1/8-inch 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.

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.
