I’m not exactly Ms. Outdoorsy Birdwatcher Woman, and mostly I find their incessant early morning tweeting an annoyance, but I do like the idea of feeding the little guys (must be the Jewish mom in me). And I love the new styles of modern bird feeders and bird houses that have recently become available.
I have a copper bird feeder I bought for my husband years ago when we had a house with a little roof deck and yard outside D.C., but we moved to Boston before we had the chance to use it. I hang it on a severed tree branch in our Truro yard every summer. If I fill it with chunky seeds, we get a serious influx of crows, who then raid my sad little garden. (Who knew crows like cucumber?) Squirrels like to raid the feeder too. I’ve since switched over to a feeder that dispenses only skinny seeds, in hopes of attracting more pleasant feathered friends.
As outdoor rooms become more popular, along with clean lines and a modern sensibility, there have been more and more stylish contemporary outdoor furnishings available. Here’s a roundup of 28 favorite modern bird feeders and bird houses from StyleCarrot partners and other sources for your birding pleasure.
