65 Eccentric Avian Abodes

From Round Galactic Birdhouses to Avian-Sheltering Bricks

— May 24, 2014 — Eco
Whether you're a fan of putting out food for friendly fowl or can't stand the fact that these critters poop on your lawn all day, these avian abodes are still an impressive feat. Although some might not want to encourage the birds to mingle outside their front door, perhaps using one of these birdhouses in a nearby tree will make the crows happy and lessen the avian bowel movements done on the deck.

Birdhouses come in all shapes and sizes these days, from ones that are made from ceramic to others that take inspiration from outer space. It's impressive just how large some of these designs are too. The questions is whether or not the little critters actually appreciate these avian mansions?
