We suppose that if we were birds, we wouldn't care one way or another if our feeder was traditional, modern, industrial or eclectic. Which leads us to remember that much of the pleasure of a birdhouse is enjoyed by the humans who watch the birds and benefit from their activity in the garden. So why not have a modern birdhouse, if modern is your thing?
joepapendick's Etsy shop is almost exclusively bird feeders made of welded steel, with open seed trays and powder coated in bright colors, if at all.
