Sorry - I have no idea about the name. In this case the bird holes were false. We installed a solid backing behind the hole cutouts to prevent water intrusion.

Thanks! -- for replying!
Here's a photo of our Dutch colonial.
I colored in a few details that I hoped we could include -- gray 2nd story + red window sashes.
^^I'm having fun, blogging about our project, here.^^

what is the house color?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
My house looks very similar. I used Benjamin Moore Lemon Souffle (331) with Simply White for the trim.

Update: I changed to Glidden ICI Wood Lily. Had to have it mixed at Benjamin Moore as it is a discontinued color, but they did a great job and it is much closer to the soft yellow here.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Check and repair screens. Take preventative measures before the bugs start to attack, and you can relax bite free all summer long.
