Google birdhouse gourds and you will see what people do with them.

Mmmm tricky one I'd be inclined to get the seeds, I'm sure Google will influence what you do in the end lol 😊😀😁

@wesleybrian We grew three kinds of these gourds this year. Have started to make a bird feeder out of a small one and birdhouses out of two larger ones. Once yours has dried more, it'll turn brownish. Then bore a hole towards the lower side and you'll be able to retrieve the seeds.
