Although the beautiful design of the 'EXO' Wooden Birdhouse makes it look more like an art piece than a mini aviary, the truth is that it's all this and more. Created by industrial designer Evan McDougall, the creator made the dwelling to answer this question: "Can design help Chickadees survive harsh winters?"

The result of his endeavor is the 'EXO' Wooden Birdhouse, which makes the perfect spot for Chickadees to hide their seeds. Being that the bird is not migratory, Chickadees must survive all winter long on seeds they've hidden in various places around their territory. As such, the 'EXO' birdhouse offers them a small, stylistic spot to hide their seeds and not simply survive, but thrive in the winter.
