Truckee Artist Creates Historical Landmark Replica Birdhouses

Here's one for the birds. After 30 years this Truckee local is back home and has brought a little something with him. Greg Zirbel, artist and owner of NeatTweets has taken his Tahoe Truckee High School woodshop skills, mixed them with his love of art, a little historical lumber and now turns out the most beautiful birdhouses youve ever seen. Not just birdhouses, historical landmark replicas are his specialty. These functional master pieces are not just birdhouses, but function as feeders as well. Each one has a story of its own and are well documented which adds to there appeal. It feels great that Im able to save a little bit of Californias gold rush history by creating whimsical replicas of our historical landmarks. You can find many of these creations at the Artisans Market Place in the Historical Brickelltown section of downtown Truckee, or visit for more.
