"The Birdbottle is a modern update to the classic bird house of the colonial days. What once was a functional necessity in the colonial period is now a testament to modernist design and simple function..."
"Constructed out of aluminum, the Birdbottle's tubular profile and slanted entrance roof provide ample security for nesting birds. The polished stainless steel perch welcomes birds home and provides a perfect spot for them to sit outside and watch over the surrounding landscape."
