A modern twist to the classic bird feeder

From the makers of the modern-looking FishCondo comes the next thing in bird feeders: the Bird Cafe.

According to The New York Times, Umbra has designed a bird feeder with modern-looking architecture that looks like it belongs in a Picasso painting.

It features glass windows, so you can look in on the amount of bird seed remaining in the feeder. The birds eat from a tray of seed protruding from the bottom.

If the feeder was a couple times larger than its 20 cm height, this would be the mecca of art lovers looking for a good meal. The great thing about this feeder is you can hang it from a tree or attach it to a wall.

Or if you’re interested in a newer design for a birdhouse, artist Peter Eudenbach created a metallic birdhouse that comes in red or yellow. But, instead of the $25 cost of the Bird Cafe, this birdhouse goes for a hefty $350.
