The birdhouse gourd, scientifically known as Cucurbita pepo, is a variety of gourd that is specifically grown for its large, hollow fruit, which can be used as a natural birdhouse or decorative container. These gourds are part of the wider Cucurbita pepo species, which also includes pumpkins, zucchinis, and other types of squash.

Birdhouse gourds are typically allowed to mature on the vine until they reach a size suitable for creating birdhouses. Once harvested and dried, the gourds can be cleaned and decorated, if desired, before being used as functional birdhouses. They provide a unique and natural nesting place for birds, such as wrens and chickadees.

In addition to their use as birdhouses, birdhouse gourds are sometimes used for crafting purposes. People may paint or carve them for decorative purposes, turning them into ornaments or functional art pieces.
