Birds Banquet Serves Up a Decorative Spread to Feed the Icelandic Crossbill

 - May 8, 2013
I suspect that our feathered friends are not overly concerned with the presentation of their favorite foods; however, the Birds Banquet certainly offers property owners an exquisite collection with which they can decorate their outdoor dining tables. Guðrún Theoodóra Alfreðsdóttir of Reykjavik, Iceland, worked with Svana Lovísa Kristjánsdóttir, Harpa Björnsdóttir and Dagbjört Ylfa Geirsdóttir to sculpt birdseed into sophisticated objects like candelabras, carafes, goblets and cutlery.

Sunflower seeds are the primary ingredient in the Frægæti bird feeders, enticing the Crossbill population especially. Since this avian species forages incessantly over the winter period, the Birds Banquet is intended to be set when the snow begins to fall, serving up a feast that will fill little bellies through to the warmer months.
