Outside in. Bring these songbirds, designed by Dr. Tsutomu Suzuki for Takara, into your home. They're very lifelike, in both appearance and sound. We've heard these motion-activated birds can be purchased at Design Within Reach and BDDW, at $18 each. The birds are modeled after hand-sculpted models by Dr. Tsutomu Suzuki of the University of Tokyo. The birds' authentic songs come from real recordings from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, whose mission is to conserve the earth's biodiversity through research, education and science-based focus on birds.
