My Spy Birdhouse allows you to combine your birdwatching hobby with your inner voyeur by attaching the birdhouse to your window and watching the birds up close.
The birdhouse, a Lenfest Media Group product, has a transparent acrylic wall that lets you see right into the birdhouse and catch all the action of the birds‘ lives, including building nests and hatching and raising their young. Aside from giving birdwatching lovers a good up close peek inside the lives of our feathered friends, it touts itself as a great way to educate children and teach them how to observe without disturbing.
My Spy Birdhouse Features
My Spy Birdhouse looks like a regular birdhouse except that the back wall is transparent and instead of hanging it in a tree, you put it against a window of your house with all-weather suction cups. Then, you just wait for birds to take up residence and observe them as much as you like.
The My Spy Birdhouse, which you can paint to customize to your tastes, comes with a two-way mirror so you can see into the birdhouse, but the birds can’t see into your house. It also comes with a privacy card that you hang against your window on the inside so light from your house won’t disturb them during the night or if you just want to give the birds some privacy at any time.
It will accommodate any small birds like wrens, nuthatches and chickadees and includes a perch for the birds.
While the My Spy Birdhouse doesn’t have any online consumer reviews yet, it has been reviewed positively by other review sites.

Bottom Line – Should you buy the My Spy Birdhosue?
The biggest questions about the My Spy Birdhouse are whether the materials are strong and whether the suction cups will hold. It would be nothing less than horrifying to have the suction cups fail when there is a nest full of babies in the birdhouse. Without any consumer reviews to go by, that is impossible to tell.
The My Spy Birdhouse is fairly inexpensive and if it does work, would be a good idea for a bird watching enthusiast. For a relatively small risk financially, it could make a good gift for a bird watcher. However, the real risk is to the birds that nest in it.

Perfect purchase for those, like me, who hate birds. I love banging on the window and scaring the crap out of the babies in the nest. My favorite pasttime is now to sit and wait for the adult to return to the nest to feed the birds, and then smack the window and watch the ensuing panic. Loads of fun for the entire family!!
I did not order online, so i didn't experience any of these scams other reviewers are reporting. I found this at a flea market for a price less than it would've been ordering, and the house seems to be sturdy enough. I haven't gotten a bird yet though :( I'm not sure if the suction cups will continue to hold, but so far they seem reliable. Overall i believe this will be a fun experience! :)
Do not give these people your CC number
Very predatory use of cc. phone orders not confirmed, multiplied order, never gave end of call confirm/review and hung up to find they had charged my card for 6 birdhouses. Immediately called to check status. Said call by in 5-20hr. Received call next morning to let me know they would send $100 gas cards with order and auto charge card if not cancelled..which I had to do. Cancelled order within 18 hr of placing - asked for email to confirm cancel..no email. finally called my cc company to refuse the charge and consider any future use of card by this company fraud.
HORRIBLE customer service and should not be allowed to be in business with these practices.
I ordered 2 of the my spy birdhouses online on a Sunday afternoon & declined all pop-ups for additional items. The total of my order was more than it should have been. When I called the company the next morning before 10:00 a.m., I was told the order had already been processed & shipped &, therefore, the extra items could not be removed.
Frankly I don't believe this. The customer service rep, who was rude, agreed to remove $14.98 from my charge card. However, I am still not happy. I should have read the reviews first!
l feel like someone was trying to scam me from the info they got from my order
Rep called me after I had already placed and confirmed my order online . The first lady I spoke with wanted to sell me a membership for some kind of savings card. I told her I wasn't interested. She directs me to another gentleman who tried the same thing then said in order to get my ISpy feeder I would need to tell him my credit card info again. In so many words I told him no.
DO not buy this Bird House!
Overcharge on s/h and the quality is VERY POOR! I am not going to go on and on like others did but, I will say I agree with them. It is NOT worth what I paid for it and I would NOT recommend to a friend or a stranger.
Added Item. Could not change order
They try to add all kinds of things to your order. I declined. However, after providing my CC info, got the total and they added on the "free" feeder for an extra $7 shipping. There was no way to revise or cancel. I hit the back button and it processed my order with the extra item and fee.
I immediately emailed and tried to call the company but, didn't get a response. A couple days got an email saying it was too late but I could send the feeder back - less shipping. I would have shipped it all back except my kids really wanted it for my wife's birthday, so I reluctantly kept it. That turned out to be a lie because about a week later I got the shipping notice. They spew complete B.S.
By the way it is typical Chinese plastic crap. Very cheap and poorly made. Not worth $5 in my opinion.
Bird death is fun!!! (not)
I loved watching my birds get attacked by maggots, while my son watched! He was traumatized by the site, but it made me only want to kill more... Long story short. My birdhouse is now a bird torture chamber:)! (sarcasm)
PS I'm gonna hunt you gas reps down and put you in my birdhouse, unless you stop calling me :)
After 2 attempts I ordered 1 house, after fendeing off heavy pressure to buy 5. A few days later I got a call from a high- pressure salesman pushing a $100 gas card that I would be billed for forever unless I called and cancelled it. When I refused he got very rude and unprofessional. It has been over a month and not bird house, I suspect he trashed my order and will still try to charge my card. DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY EVER!!!
2 months - still no product arrival - or staus (I'd actually forgot I ordered it till I seen this site.
For all these negative comments - I agree 100%... Still haven't seen the products ordered (2 months now) and was I ever smashed with phone calls just after I ordered them. Some outfit(s) were trying to sell me Stuff I didn't want (the subscriptions as mentioned by other commenter's for discounted "Stuff" to join the club)... I just now (hopefully) have these extra memberships completely canceled - by phone / email / and mailing the "Stuff" back to them... it is a complete / total / ruthless scam O' rama deal...
Don't do it -- period. Ever. At all. Never!
My experience is similar to many of those above.
1. They sold my name/ number. Ever since I placed an order for a My Spy Bird house, I have been bombarded with solicitation calls.
2. When I finally did answer one of their calls, I was told I’d been signed up for something (that I didn’t ask for). I need to call 800.475.1942 next month to cancel, or my card on file will be charged $30 a month (for something I didn’t order?!) This cannot be legal.
3. The operator also asked me to recite my credit card number over the phone, which I was very uncomfortable with. I told him “no”, and he spent the next few minutes trying to convince me. I still refused.
I should not be flooded with calls, signed up for something I didn’t want, and coerced into giving personal information over the phone. I’m tempted to contact the Better Business Bureau regarding this.
I bought this because I hate birds. The birds would be upset because they would see a perfect bird house that they would love to use but recognized that the location, building materials and suction cups sucked which would hopefully cause the birds to finish out their lives in a state mental anguish. It worked well.
My daughter went nuts after seeing the ad for this on t.v. It's not available in stores yet so I ordered it only because they claim you should hang it up late February/early March and it seems to take awhile to deliver. Just received the phone call about some free gas/coupons that I need to cancel or will be billed $30 a month for. The man on the phone wanted me to "confirm" my credit card #. When I told him I didn't have it on me he told me to go through the mail and pull out an old statement! When I told him I couldn't do that he said he'd stay on the line doing "paperwork" for as long as it took until I gave him the #. What a joke. I hung up and now have to worry about dealing with this nonsense. Do not deal with these people.
What happen to my "spy bird house" order????? Its almost three weeks now and two days after my order. I kept calling 1 888 406 1765 and all I get is a call-back-later message. I could never speak to a live person.
This product is complete crap. The bird house first of all is made of plastic not wood as if appears. Also when you "spy" on the birds you really disturb them with your face being right there, and if that's not enough the suction cups WILL stop sticking so the house will fall and hurt if not kill the birds.
Be very careful when ordering on-line. I ordered 4 birdhouses. I saw my credit card statement and was charged 3 different times ( all different prices). I called customer service she told me to write refuse on the boxes I did not want and send back, That is what I did. Then they would credit my account. Now they will not give me a refund on $91.00 because they can't locate the box. My 4 birdhouses cost me 35.00 bucks each...what a deal! .
I ordered mine about two or so days ago and got the same phone call. They talked about a thank you for ordering here is a $100 gas vaucher card and more that you can use such as grocery shopping, eating out, etc. that will be with your birdhouse once it comes. I found it very odd and ask the rep. about it on why and how was this started because I did NOT want this and can I cancel right now becasue I also never asked for this! She said the same thing as above, no you have to confirm through me but here's the number to call to cancel and blah, blah, blah! I was so fustrated I called and cancelled my card because I didn't want to get dragged in to that mess I was pulled into when I didn't even start it! All I wanted was the birdhouse and that's it! So in the long run this is a rediculous way to go...DON'T EVEN BOTHER WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!
I do not recommend this product to anybody. Suction cups come undone from glass and birds fall and die. Not to mention bird nest have bird mites and lice which can be a real problem if they infest your home, pets, and you!
When the suction cups fail. AND THEY WILL you and your family can watch bird eggs and baby birdies fall to their death. Not to mention, with your big ole human face glued to the glass you can play a part in disrupting the natural habitat of your birdie friends.
All of this said in a sarcastic manner because I can't be the only one who thought of this
I do not recommend this product
--I ordered this for my husband on December 18th as a Christmas gift after seeing the infomercial. I ordered the "special" - the second birdhouse for only s&h and the free window birdfeeder included. I realized that, only a week before Christmas, it may not arrive in time but that was reasonable, no worries.
On December 19th, a rep from the customer called me to "thank me for ordering" but, in reality, was trying to sell me something else, telling me they were sending me some blah blah blah ( can't remember what it was) and if I kept it, I would be billed. Only if I cancelled, would I not be billed.
I asked - "Wait, so you are sending me something unsolicited that I have to take the time to cancel in order not to be billed?" He said no, he was asking me know if he could send it. No, thank you. I was a little annoyed that a simple online purchase turned into a slick sales call for something else.
I then asked the rep - "What are my chances of this arriving for Christmas?" He was very vague as he said "it's shipping right away". Ok - again, I understand that a week before Christmas there are no promises.
My credit card was not billed until six days later on the 24th. The product did not arrive until 13 business days later on January 2nd. And when it did arrive, there was no bird feeder. And the product, while it appears to be wooden on the infomercial, is plastic and pretty junky. Definitely not worth $15.00 IMO.
Spend a few extra dollars and buy one of the much better quality wooden products that are out there and where you probably will not get a slick sales call the next day that, if you are not paying attention, will cost you more money.
